The Noguchi Museum
9-01 33rd Road at Vernon Blvd. Long Island City, NY 11106
The Noguchi Museum was designed by Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi in 1985. As to be expected, the two-story, 24,000-square-foot, 12-gallery space exhibits his sculptures, furniture designs, architectural models, and drawings. There is also an adjacent outdoor garden with more Noguchi sculptures.
The museum is located across the street from where Noguchi worked and lived during the 1960s and 1970s. He bought a photogravure plant and gas station in 1974 and converted them into his museum.
Inside scoop: Noguchi is free the first Friday of every month. During the summer months (May–September), it has extended hours and special programming.
