As someone who's lived here long enough to remember the sailors when they still lived at the harbor, I thought I knew everything about the place. I was wrong! I learned so much about the history of Snug Harbor and the residents there, besides learning about John Noble himself. It's a small museum (very manageable in one visit) but loaded... More

The John A. Noble Museum for Maritime History is a small museum located in Sailors' Snug Harbor, a place in Staten Island with some excellent Greek-Revival buildings (see the Snug Harbor review). Inside the free museum is a world-class collection of model ships, & some interesting old maps. It's not worth a special outing, but if you're already in Snug... More

Some really nice art from a local master, with no better place to see the full collection and get a real sense of the sea and how it connects to Staten Island.

Possibly the most famous Staten Island artist, John Noble has a small museum dedicated to his work, and also his work environment. The houseboat he used as a studio is intact there, as well as many of his lithographs and other works of art.

The picture shown is his former home, I lived there in 2003-2004, throughout the home there were nautical artifacts and murals that John painted himself, in the floor and in the most odd places there were port holes. Was a very nice experience to have lived in his historical home

The John Noble Maritime Museum is located in the Snug Harbor Cultural Center . The museum collection is mostly of his artwork. His lithographs of New York harbor at the turn of the century are facinating and stunning. Also on exhibit is his actual studio , it is a small boat he built himself out of pieces of the disolving...

When it comes to displaying art, the better known and more prolific artist was John A. Noble's father, also named John Noble but nicknamed Wichita Bill. The son was a legendary drinker who might have been more successful if he had been dry. In any case, the son's house is a testament to both his and his father's considerable talents... More

The Noble is definitely worth a stop in as you stroll through Snug Harbor Cultural Center- it combines the works of local artist John Noble with the unique history of the Snug Harbor grounds, It also has a terrific space for childrens learning and interesting shows throughout the year.

The John Noble Maritime Museum is more than a collection of artifacts, an educational resource, and a working artists community. It is passion ashore. Please come by on the third Sunday of the month and give a listen to the Chantey Sing too!

I enjoyed the beautiful art work on exhibit for the Titanic centennial. Staten Island abounds with talented artists, and it is a source of pride. This event -- the opening -- was well organized with good food, great music, and a nice display that included different artistic mediums. I would recommend this museum. I have been here many times, and... More
