It’s a Smile-a-Minute!

Where can kids explore a pirate ship, drive a dogsled through the tundra, and crawl through a giant ant hill?

At the Staten Island Children’s Museum, of course! The exhibits in this hands-on museum demonstrate that learning is fun, while nurturing children’s curiosity and creativity. Kids can watch bees working inside their hive in the Bugs and Other Insects exhibit, put on a show in Portia’s Playhouse, speed to the rescue in a real fire truck at Ladder 11, or sound a foghorn in the Sea of Boats. The Staten Island Children’s Museum is a great place for kids to learn while they play!
