The National Lighthouse Museum is in St. George, Staten Island, steps away from the Staten Island Ferry. After years of planning and setup, the museum partially opened this year, waiving admission until the full museum is completed.
This 2013 video from Staten Island NYC Living shows several aspects of the museum’s progress and talks about some of the activities that can be found there, even before construction is completed.
The National Lighthouse Museum is very much a work in progress on the grounds of the former U.S. Lighthouse Service “Super” Depot on the North Shore of Staten Island. The award-winning integrated design firm , Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design (LHSA+DP), has completed plans for the interior and exterior of our Educational Resource Center in Building 11 and a contractor has been engaged to start work on the project. LHSA+DP has also completed the designs of many of our initial exhibits and the acquisition and cataloging of our collection is underway.
