If you’re looking for a calm relaxing experience filled with art away from the busy streets of New York, let me suggest a day trip to visit The Noguchi Museum in Queens.
The Noguchi Museum
The Noguchi Museum is the first museum in the US to be established by a living artist in 1985.
Address: 9-01 33rd Rd, Queens, NY 11106
General admission $10/adult, $5/senior or student ID.
Noguchi Museum visit is FREE every first Friday of the month, and reservation is required. Schedule it online HERE.

Please note that photoshoots are not allowed in the museum. You still can take photos of objects and things. Masks are required all throughout the museum including the outdoor garden. *We did take some photos with me in it, but we were very respectful and quick.
First Floor Galleries
Second Floor Galleries
At the Museum Shop (staircase entrance is located right outside when you’re about to enter the outdoor Garden), you’d be able to browse a huge selection of Akari light sculptures, furniture, publications, and gifts designed by Isamu Noguchi. The famous Akari lamps are handmade in Gifu, Japan.
