The Noguchi Museum

save place
An art oasis in Long Island City
The sculptures of Isamo Noguchi grace public spaces around the world, but the museum that showcases his best works occupies a former photogravure plant in Long Island City, Queens. As much as I like Noguchi's gigantic public pieces, the artist's studio-turned-museum is my favorite place to admire his work.

Noguchi designed the museum, and everything is displayed exactly as he wished. It is intimate and crowd-free, and the garden is furnished with benches. The effect is soothing, an oasis of natural forms and quiet spaces. An afternoon here is a delightful retreat from the hustle of Manhattan!

There is street parking nearby, and public transport brings a visitor within a few blocks of the museum. On Sundays, a shuttle is available from the Asia Society in Manhattan
