Where are we going today?

For 127 years, the Staten Island Museum has been fostering and sustaining scientific and cultural heritage on Staten Island. Founded in 1881, NYC's only general interest museum - and Staten Island’s hometown Museum - explores the arts, natural science, and local history through exhibitions and welcomes over 73,000 adults and school children to a comprehensive array of programs. Located two blocks from the Ferry Terminal, visitors can embark on a voyage through time in the Staten Island Ferry exhibit; see rocks glow in the dark along with oddities in the Hall of Natural Sciences and experience the life of Staten Island's first inhabitants.
