Getting to The Staten Island Museum is half the fun as you board the ferry across New York harbor from Manhattan. This once modest institution is now blooming and is currently operating out of three locations: The original building, the Staten Island Museum in St. George (1918) is conveniently located just two blocks from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. Less than 2 miles down the road on the historic ground of Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden is the Staten Island Museum History Center & Archives (Building H, 2009), and directly adjacent is our flagship location, the Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor (Building A, 2015). Snug Harbor is 83-acre campus situated on parkland that is home to several cultural agencies in a unique cluster of 19th century Greek Revival buildings. The 1879 dormitory for retired sailors has been transformed into into a state-of-the-art museum with engaging exhibitions.
