Open House New York Weekend: This Green Building – Behind the Scenes Tour
Friday, October 21, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Free with museum admission
Join us on this behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s closed-loop geothermal system, which uses the Earth’s constant temperature and a series of circulating pumps to heat and cool the building, minimizing the need for fossil fuels. The Staten Island Museum is the first historic landmark building on Staten Island to earn LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council.
Open House New York Weekend is an annual festival that opens hundreds of noteworthy or significant places across the five boroughs for three days of in-person and virtual tours, talks, and special activities.
