I always like taking the ferry from Manhattan to Staten Island. Make sure to give yourself 4 to 5 or maybe 6 hours because there is a lot to see in that area. A really cool art exhibit titled Truth on Display at the Newhouse...More

This is a very small museum, but, well done. Don't expect the MET, but, it is a nice local museum that is worth a stop if you are on Staten Island.

Have Impractical Jokers exhibit now. If you're a fan of the show, go. Other exhibits include a Mastodon, art landscapes showing SI in the 18th and 19th centuries. Good for families.

We were welcomed very nicely by the Museum’s personnel and given a short introduction which was useful, because we visited every floor including the lower one, where we found out things about StAten Island’s history we did not know, and many will be surprised to...More

I finally was able to check out this museum after meaning to for years. I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more on the history or Staten Island itself. It’s a smaller museum but worth checking out when you visit Snug Harbor

while you are touring the grounds of Snug Harbor, you should drop in the SI Museum. They have diverse exhibits that are interesting and informative.

We went to the museum during a Sunday. At first, we weren't sure if we were entering the right building because there was scaffolding around the entrance. The staff there said that that was a common problem, but they were doing some improvements because the...More

Eclectic collection in architecturally significant building on historic site. I like the gallery on the economic development of the island. It is hard to believe the primary terrestrial activity was dairy farming. Nor can I imagine mastodons roaming on Staten Island

Small museum with some interesting exhibits on the natural, cultural, and maritime history of the island. There is a particular interest in the history of the Staten Island Ferry, probably the most recognized attraction attached to the island. An hour is enough to see all...More
