  • My wife and I, along with our daughter have been enjoying some innovative classes/seminars being presented as part of a summer series. We've learned pickling, how to make sauerkraut and learned the hi...  read 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 ev...  read more »
  • First, it is better small museum than no museum! Second, they could do better. The place is small, cool, but just not enough. I don’t know how many actually visited this Museum, and to be honest, I can’t say that they missed a lot. I try to visit an exhibition once a month, and I guess I will have to go to NYC or to Brooklyn to get a chance to see a good one.
  • Good one
  • I would not waste your time going to the Staten Island Museum. It is not worth even the free trip on the Staten Island Ferry. While I heard good things about their exhibits, I was underwhelmed, especially on their exhibit (in the basement) of the Native Americans who used to live in that area. In their defense, I guess you have to work with what you've got as far as space goes, but it was small, stuffy, and the displays were really bland. Maybe some of their events (they talk about summer camp for kids in the summer as being a big thing) are better, but the museum itself lacks interesting displays (and I really like museums).
  • kids love this place i enjoyed it as well..
  • Located in St George near the SI Ferry Terminal is a tiny museum great for kids to learn about science, history and art.
