The Staten Island Museum continues to fulfill its mission to the community despite enormous challenges. While stay-at-home orders and social distancing are keeping us safe, COVID-19 has deeply impacted the Museum through loss of revenue from admissions, educational and public programs, site rentals, and the cancellation of our Annual Gala.

Although our hours are limited, culture has not come to a standstill! The Staten Island Museum has created innovative and exciting programs to share with the community from the safety of your home.

Please consider making a donation today to help us continue to provide programs and care for precious collections during these challenging times.

The Staten Island Museum has been here since 1881 and will stand many more decades into the future. We remain a constant presence and mainstay to the community.
