The Noguchi Museum, chartered as The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum, was designed and created by the Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi in 1985 to preserve and display his sculptures, architectural models, stage designs, drawings, and furniture designs. It is a two story museum with an outdoor sculpture garden. It is located in the Long Island City section of Queens, one block from the Socrates Sculpture Park. In 2004, a major renovation allowed the museum to remain open year round.
