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.
