Fodor's Review

In 1985 the Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904–88) transformed this former industrial plant into a place to display his modernist and earlier works. A peaceful central garden is surrounded by galleries, and there are some 200 pieces in stone, metal, clay, and other materials on display. Temporary exhibits have examined his collaborations with others, such as industrial designer Isamu Kenmochi, architect and inventor R. Buckminster Fuller, and choreographer Martha Graham. The museum is about a mile from subway stops; check the website for complete directions. There are extended evening hours on the first Friday of the month, from May through September.
