Hours

Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden’s main campus is open seven days a week, from dawn until dusk.

Only two of our attractions – the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art and the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden – have special hours.

Our campus partner organizations are managed separately and have their own individual operating hours.  Learn about times to visit the Staten Island Museum, the Staten Island Children’s Museum, and the Noble Maritime Collection here.
