Founded in 1881, New York City’s only general interest museum explores the arts, natural sciences, and local history through permanent and changing exhibitions and welcomes over 65,000 adults and school children to a comprehensive array of programs. Located just two blocks from the Ferry Terminal, visitors can embark on a voyage through time in the Staten Island Ferry exhibit, get close to exotic insects, see rocks glow in the dark along with oddities in the Hall of Natural Sciences and experience the life of Staten Island’s first inhabitants, the Lenape. I know this fantastic museum well; I had a solo art exhibit there. – CvB
