Spending a day at this park makes you feel as if you aren't in a borough of NYC at all. The grounds are beautiful, perfect for strolling around in on a summer day. When we went, the Chinese Garden was closed ( Monday), as were some other exhibits. However, we did go into the 9/11 exhibit, walked through the Secret... More

The beautifully landscaped grounds occupies your mind while you walk from one exhibit to the next. The works of art on dispaly is... More

Many things to do and see! You can stroll around on the grounds and take in all the beauty, or go into the many buildings and see the numerous exhibits. The Chinese Garden and the 9-11 Exhibit were awesome!

Snug Harbor hosted the annual Staten Island PrideFest on July 12 2014 and it was a historic and record breaking day. The grounds were beautiful and were the perfect setting for the 5k run and the Interfaith service as well as the festival. Thank You so much Snug Harbor and your team for doing this!

Started with the Noble Museum which was refreshingly different combining artifacts and exhibits pertaining to the old Seaman's Retirement home with an artist's house boat and studios and paintings and model ships. Spent the remainder of our time in the gardens visiting the Tuscan garden, the Chinese Scholars Garden and the Secret Garden. The Scholars garden is a must-see with... More

Bike there, jog through, drive, or bus from the ferry. My special treat is to sit and savor the Scholar's Garden in all seasons and weather. 83 landscaped acres include botanical, Tuscan, Chinese Scholar's gardens, and a seasonal opportunity to purchase fresh heirloom herbs & vegetables, plus a view of NY's waterfront from its restored Greek Revival buildings. Those amazing... More

A special island for the arts and culture on Staten Island that not only attracts visitors from around the globe, but also for people who live in this unique location. It is a treasure that brings us back again and again, from season to season, to enjoy the gifts of nature and man.

Snug Harbor is a park with so much to do. The site is home to the Snug museum, the Chinese Scholars Garden, the Newhouse gallery, the Noble Maritime collection and the beautiful Tuscan Garden plus the Childrens Museum. The site also hosts many events, including community theatre.
