In the Wings and Harbor Lights Theater put on performances that are Broadway quality at Staten Island prices! Families can enjoy live plays at affordable prices. The gardens and museums are wonderful!

So much to offer on this hidden, off the beaten path, location on Staten Island's shore. I highly recommend spending the day.

Arrived at 10:00 with NO access to Museums even though sign states otherwise. Be sure to use bathroom before making trip out. Great place to get your 10,000 steps. Some buildings look great others need help. The botanical garden paths are beautiful. A lot of students walking aimlessly around probably waiting for doors to unlock.

So glad we went. Walked from ferry - about 30 minutes easy walk - or take the bus S44). Unfortunately everything was closed as we went on a Monday that was also July 4. History, gardens, interest, nature and more, this place is well worth the visit. Recommend for tourists and locals.

Nice place to visit on a cool but sunny day. I singed up for a watercolor class which starts next week. It will be my first at the Art Lab at Snug Harbor, hoping it will be fun. Review to follow

As a lifelong SHCC visitor,I was anxious to visit the new SI historical center. This large, beautiful bldg is wasted. Too much is spent on items not really associated with SI,& the space is so underused. Very disappointed. SI has a wonderful , colorful history which aches to be told.

Came back to visit the Chinese Garden after more than 20 years. It is still a beautiful and peaceful place. My wife and I walked through it and admired its tranquility. There are very places in New York City one is able to do this.

Last night in The Great Hall members of the NY Philharmonic performed Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" & 2 other pieces. We sat upstairs in the balcony & loved having the space almost to ourselves. The main level was packed. The musicians gave a flawless performance & the acoustics in the hall are very good. The grounds are so nice to walk... More

We walked the 1.5 miles from the Ferry Terminal to Snug Harbor, and didn't quite know what to expect. It turned out to be a huge cultural center with everything from a history museum to a Chinese garden, to a fabulous children's museum. Lots of places to picnic. You can also take a bus from the ferry terminal.
