Both located at Snug Harbor, the new Staten Island Museum and always-worth-visiting John Noble Institute are the 2 proudest achievements in my 34 years on this Island. Each has exhibits and activities as exciting & educational for adults as for kids. GET OFF THE FERRY AND GO THERE BY LOCAL BUS OR LONG WALK: they're worth the visit.

I really enjoyed the Nautical Museum, Gardens and Art Museum. Here's a note, if you are military, the Museums are free. This is a great place for kids to run free and family afternoon getaway. The Nautical museum has the most amazing Schooners encased in glass cases that I have ever seen.

I recently attended a pond and Water Garden Show held at The Snug Harbor cultural center and Gardens. This was their first year holding an event at Snug Harbor. It turned out to be a fantastic choice of a location to hold the show at. I did not get time to explore all of the gardens, but what I saw... More

Snug Harbor is full of activities, places and wild birds. I was so moved by the Firefighters Memorial to the heroes of 9/11. Amazed by the nice sized labyrinth for parents and children, a castle for children. This only mentions the many things this amazing place offers its visitors!! They offer much more, classes, theater and gardens.

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.
