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 Center for Contemporary Art. Learning the history of the SNUG Museum is worst going back in time. Must see if you're in NYC.

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 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
