Staten Island Museum
Founded in 1881, the Staten Island Museum, which is in two locations—one is in St. George and the other in Snug Harbor—is the only general interest museum in New York City. Its areas of focus are the natural science, art, and history of Staten Island and the region. Its collections reflect these areas. The natural science collection features over half a million specimens. The art collection features works from all over the world, with an emphasis on Staten Island related art. The museum also houses a library and archives which hold thousands of books and other materials related to the island.
