Do I have to visit all of the attractions in one day?

Up to you! You can visit everything in one day, or see a different attraction each time you visit. The Discovery Pass is valid for up to one year from the first day it is redeemed in person.  It can be used to visit each location once.

How can I find where the attractions are located at Snug Harbor?

Visit our Directions page, where you can download our campus map.

What if I lose my Discovery Pass?

You need your original physical pass card to access the attractions under the Discovery Pass. Passes cannot be replaced or refunded.

Is there a different priced Discovery Pass for children, seniors, students, or groups?

Not yet.  We look forward to potentially offering different price points at a later date after we explore the results of the first phase of this program.

What days and times are the attractions open?

Before your visit, please double-check the websites of the attractions you wish to visit for information of any special changes in hours or closures:

Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Building C)
New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden (entrance at Cottage E)
Noble Maritime Collection (Building D)
Staten Island Children’s Museum (Building M)
Staten Island Museum (Building A)

Can I lend my Discovery Pass to someone else?

Sure thing! The Discovery Pass admits one person to each attraction one time. If you want to see the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden and then give your pass to a friend who would like to see the Staten Island Museum, that is permitted. However, that would mean that you would not be able to visit the Staten Island Museum with the same Discovery Pass.

Can I use the Discovery Pass at the Staten Island Children’s Museum?

The Staten Island Children’s Museum is not included in the Discovery Pass at this time.

Can I see the other botanical gardens and the Heritage Farm at Snug Harbor with the Discovery Pass?

Snug Harbor’s thirteen other botanical gardens and historic 83-acre outdoor grounds are free of charge to enter and explore, so you don’t need the Discovery Pass to enjoy those. The Heritage Farm is currently not open to visitors and is not included in the Discovery Pass, but you can see the crops and growing houses through the farm fence.
