We took the ferry from Battery Park, and spent 2 hours visiting this small and quirky museum of Staten Island.

On our Snug Harbor we took in this museum. Besides special exhibits, there's a permanent Mastadon Exhibit. We were short on time so didn't have time to see the whole museum. Worth a stop if you're in Snug Harbor.

While the summer series may be coming to an end, the... More

Great history of Staten Island more than 60+ years ago. So country like. The museum has a great gift shop as well. Make it a stop on your trip.

Near Government Offices so parking is tricky. The special exhibit "Home Games", until Feb 5 2017, is worth the stop alone. Local Staten Islanders who made it big in sports. Also interesting was the evolution of the Ferry business and the classes of ships. The Museum's Historian is a fount of knowledge.

Was very hard for me to hold interest in this museum. It was full of old items (insects, weird things in jars) We walked in and right back out.
