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 learn too!!! The other exhibits are extremely interesting, all with their corresponding explanations and very well presented. And now that the Museum is located at Snug Harbor, the surrounding grounds, deserve a stroll through them! TIP: if visiting by car, parking is behind the Museum and then walk around the building to the entrance on the front!

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

If you’re taking the free Staten Island Ferry this Museum is definitely worth a visit. You can take the S40 bus from St George Ferry Terminal straight there. I visited on a Thursday afternoon and had the place to myself which was very welcome amongst the bustle of NYC. Exhibits were quirky but really interesting, they have free wifi and entry is by donation so you can pay what you want.

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.
