Launching in November 2021
Over its 140 year history, the museum has been a leader in the scientific and cultural life of New York City and a valuable resource for environmentalists, historians, artists and researchers. The museum’s collection of specimens, objects, documents, artwork, and stories has been instrumental in this work. For our 140th anniversary, SIM’s collections staff has selected 140 Objects to share as an online exhibition and to launch our website’s searchable collections database. Take a fresh look into the Staten Island Museum’s collections with 140 Objects that illustrate fascinating historical insights, scientific revelations and artistic endeavors.
