CG: Staten Island Children's Museum Announces Their Upcoming EventsJuly 19, 2011 - by NYC News Desk
The Staten Island Children's Museum appeals to the intrepid explorer in every child. Interactive exhibitions and creative workshops offer plenty of opportunities for hands-on, first hand experiences that nurture children's natural curiosity and creativity. Visits to the museum launch children on a voyage of discovery - about themselves and the world around them.
