Staten Island Northeast Coastline Museums
Item 3 of 5
Newly opened in 2015, the National Lighthouse Museum is dedicated to preserving the navigational history of lighthouses. It is located next to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal on what was once the United States Lighthouse Service general service depot, which, at its peak was the country's main operations and technology center. The museum was established to educate the public about the history of lighthouses which, thanks to modern technologies, are becoming more and more obsolete. The museum offers lighthouses tours, symposiums, lectures, and other events throughout the year.
