Brooklyn Daytripper: Staten Island Children’s Museum

Last week we wrote a blog about visiting the Staten Island Museum. In these record low temperatures we were looking to combat cabin fever and also for a refuge from the brisk outdoors and holiday crowds. Well, it’s still freezing out and we are all still looking for places to visit. Here is one for the kids!

Tucked in the adorable enclave called Snug Harbor, and virtually next door to the Staten Island Museum, is the Staten Island Children’s Museum.  It is vast, clean, and rarely crowded. As we stated in our previous daytripper blog about Staten Island, it is extremely close and easy to get to if you have a car but a good hour and a half away via public transit.  The children’s museum has several rooms dedicated to educational play and an entire lower floor with over-sized games like Chess, Connect Four and Dominoes that are just plain fun.  We do recommend eating before or after your trip.  The cafe doesn’t have a lot of appetizing options for adults.  Check out our photo gallery below to get a better idea of what to expect!
