We went to the museum during a Sunday. At first, we weren't sure if we were entering the right building because there was scaffolding around the entrance. The staff there said that that was a common problem, but they were doing some improvements because the...More

Eclectic collection in architecturally significant building on historic site. I like the gallery on the economic development of the island. It is hard to believe the primary terrestrial activity was dairy farming. Nor can I imagine mastodons roaming on 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.
