On our Snug Harbor we took in this museum. Besides special exhibits, there's a permanent Mastadon Exhibit. We were short on time so didn't have time to see the whole museum. Worth a stop if you're in Snug Harbor.

The Staten island Museum has two locations -one just outside the St. George Ferry Terminal and a brand-new LEED-certified building at Snug Harbour Cultural Centre and Botanical Garden. Visitors can discover the contributions of Staten Island borough to the city's art and culture

Was very hard for me to hold interest in this museum. It was full of old items (insects, weird things in jars) We walked in and right back out.
