The museum is bigger than I had anticipated. The inside of the museum is like a mansion. The woodwork is absolutely amazing. It is very relevant to maritime history on Staten Island. I especially enjoyed looking at the houseboat studio. I loved the mud-tiles in the commode since I have something similar in my own home. Above all, the staff were extremely friendly. I felt right at home after a warm welcome from the gentleman who opened the door. I felt free to take my time and look around. This is a gem of a museum right in Staten Island.

This museum is in a beautiful building in SNUG Harbor. We need to ring the bell at the main door and a volunteer comes and opens the door and he will be kind enough to take us round and explain to us . The exhibits are neatly arranged and we will get the booklet showing and explaining the arte facts.
This noble maritime collection has a museum and a house boat. The collection of noble art has a boat, paintings, things used by sailors.

This museum is located on the grounds of Snug Harbor. It is a gorgeous venue with beautiful artwork displayed, some permanent exhibits and some changing. A must see and a quick trip from the ferry.

CHoose to hold a small party to celebrate a second wedding reception. The staff at the Noble Maritime were extremely knowledgeable about party planning and the museum was impeccable, the guests were pleasantly surprised you could check out the collection during the party..Highly recommended for a small gathering in a unique setting.

John Noble was quite a character. He would love this Museum especially his beloved Houseboat Studio which was renovated and brought right into the Museum. Great exhibits, lots of fun activities and just a real interesting place to visit.

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 Harbor, whose architecture IS worth seeing, it's worth going in.

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

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 there is always something new going on.

Good collection of Maritime artifacts. Located on the same grounds as botanical garden and Children's museum - all can be visited on the same day
