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.

Enjoy Up4Art walk-in art workshops this weekend and next, dance the night away on Boogie Woogie Wednesday-we're learning Feraba (West African Dance) this week, and there's fresh fruit galore to be eaten in our Health Plus Kidz Cook workshops on Friday! Ever try Strawberry Trifle?
