Museum of Maritime Navigation and Communication
Our goal is to make available to the public a collection of maritime equipment and related historical material in order to preserve the collection as part of Staten Island’s permanent heritage. We want to spread maritime knowledege and to arrange, create, and promote displays and exhibits showcasing the evolution of marine electronics and our rich local history. As such, we want the museum to be an instrument of education by organizing meaningful programs, workshops, and lectures at schools, libraries, and cultural institutions. We are also aiming to create a Study Center to promote the compilation of historical maritime narratives, publications, and photographs and encourage public interaction and research.
