  • 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.

    The Staten Island Museum is a proud member of the Cultural Institutions Group (CIG), a public-private partnership with the City of New York, and receives operating support from the City of New York which owns its building through the Department of Cultural Affairs, Commissioner Tom Finkelpearl, from Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council, Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, with additional support from Staten Island delegation and the Staten Island Borough President, James S. Oddo.
