Owner description: Located on the grounds of Snug Harbor Cultural Center, this art and maritime history museum centers on the art and writings of John A. Noble (1913-1983.)
Reviewed January 29, 2014

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.

Some really nice art from a local master, with no better place to see the full collection and get a real sense of the sea and how it connects to Staten Island.

Possibly the most famous Staten Island artist, John Noble has a small museum dedicated to his work, and also his work environment. The houseboat he used as a studio is intact there, as well as many of his lithographs and other works of art.

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

The John Noble Maritime Museum is located in the Snug Harbor Cultural Center . The museum collection is mostly of his artwork. His lithographs of New York harbor at the turn of the century are facinating and stunning. Also on exhibit is his actual studio , it is a small boat he built himself out of pieces of the disolving sailing ships he was painting and drawing around the harbor. There are also well done childrens exhibits. The two times we were there we had to ring the door bell and wait awhile before being let in . Definately worth a visit. Also at the Snug Harbor Cultural center is the Chineese Scholar Garden and the Secret garden .A very good mexican resturant is a short drive , Blue Adobe.
