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.
