The Noguchi Museum was founded and designed by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi for the display of what he considered to be representative examples of his life’s work. Opened in 1985, the museum is housed in a converted industrial building connected to a building and interior garden of Noguchi’s design. Noguchi was an early pioneer who led the metamorphosis of the Long Island City area into the arts district it is today. The museum is considered in itself to be one of the artist’s greatest works.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays through Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. General admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. It is free for public high school students with a valid ID.
