The museum is located on the grounds of Snug Harbor Cultural Center, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY, and is accessible through gates on both the east on the west sides of the site. The directions below will direct you to the east gate located on Fillmore Street. Once you enter the gate, make an immediate left and you will see the  parking area. (Note for handicap parking: once inside the gate, make the first right hand turn and then follow the road around a left-hand bend. Just around the bend, you will see the signed parking space near the first building on your right.)

By public transportation

Take the subway to South Ferry. The Staten Island Ferry is a free trip and runs every 15 minutes at weekday rush hour and every 30 minutes for the majority of the day and weekends.  (Ferry info, click here). From the ferry terminal at Staten Island take the S40 bus to the stop located at the front gate of Snug Harbor. It is a very short trip. (Note: Walking time from the ferry terminal is approximately 25 minutes—a nice walk along the waterfront.)

Once parked, follow the signs directing you towards the Noble Maritime Collection. It is located in Building D. There are five Greek revival style buildings in a row along the front of the site (near the waterfront and Richmond Terrace). If you were to stand with your back to the water, Building D is the second building from the left of these five. There is both a front and back entrance to the museum (back door is handicap accessible). Ring the bell on the side of the door and our staff will welcome you.
