Who really invented the Telephone?
Aug 2019
In case you thought it was Alexander Bell. You are mistaken. Antonio Meucci did in this house on Staten Island. Giuseppe Garibaldi the George Washington of Italy also lived here. A lot of history here.

Visited the Meucci’s house where Giuseppe GARIBALDI lived in has been an experience for us. Many objects to see used by the man that made Italy. Meucci story is a injustice story. Definitely Bell stole the invention and you know already the end. But is another Italian genius that as many others made the today world....

Tow 19th Century Giants Lived Here
Jul 2017 • Couples
The man who invented the telephone and the man who unified Italy lived together in this humble building. It may be humble in size and style, but it is massive as far as the two brilliant Italians who called this building home during the 19th century.
Visit, see the rooms where they slept, learn of their beer and candle-making endeavors, and then go home and ponder on what took place in this corner of STaten Island.

Italian Class Cancelled
Sep 2017 • Friends
I have not been to this museum but I can tell you our group of 3 was very disappointed in this museum. We were signed up for an Italian class and one week before the class was due to start, they cancelled it. I would say that if you want to take Italian, you may want to go somewhere else. We were told maybe next semester, no one was upset except us, it felt like cancellation was routine here. (can't say for sure).

Well kept secret with really historic inventions. I learned a lot about these people I didn't know. If you like history this place is awesome. Check out hours & days of operation not always open. I would definitely recommend this museum.
