Admission

Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden’s main campus is free of charge to the public.

Only two of our attractions – the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art and the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden – require admission fees. Read about them below.

Snug Harbor offers a variety of public events for all ages and interests. All events are rain or shine unless otherwise indicated. Snug Harbor has a no refund policy on all event tickets.

Our campus partner organizations are managed separately and have their own admission prices.  Learn about admission to the Staten Island Museum, the Staten Island Children’s Museum, and the Noble Maritime Collection here.
