  • 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 ...  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.

  • This is small but still cool because on Tuesday its free 12-2pm but i wish there more to see but i will still come but not all the time
  • 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.
  • Poor quality exhibits, smells odd and has no parking.
  • 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).
  • Good one
