About the Staten Island Museum

Especially for thinkers, doers and the curious who are seeking diverse and engaging experiences in a unique setting, Staten Island Museum is the place for exploring the dynamic connection between natural science, art and history since 1881.

We share our passion for the world we live in through innovative exhibitions based on our multi-disciplinary collections, intellectually stimulating programs, scholarly research and enriching partnerships.
