Our new guide will help you connect topics and ideas from your visit to the Staten Island Children’s Museum with the Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden’s grounds, architecture and animals. You can download a pdf of the guide to your phone or check out a hard copy at the front desk when you visit. The guide was made possible by a grant from the Richmond County Savings Bank Foundation.


Boogie Woogie Wednesdays are back for Summer!


Pick up some new dance moves this summer and enjoy FREE admission to the Museum two hours before each Wednesday evening performance.


Picnicking is encouraged! Bring your dinner, dine under the tent on the Meadow and create a family tradition while enjoying the performance. Check out this summer’s schedule!
