Come experience a personal tour of the historic National Lighthouse Museum on the original site of the New York Marine Hospital (known as "The Quarantine") and later the United States Lighthouse Service. The National Lighthouse Museum still has several of the original buildings including the lamp shops, barracks, and administration building still standing onsite. Current exhibits include "Black History" featuring Willis Augustus Hodges, the first African American Lighthouse Keeper of Cape Henry Light and histories of Lighthouses from New York to New Jersey.  

The National Lighthouse Museum is a short (3-5 minute) walk from the Staten Island Ferry terminal. Once at the ferry docks in St. George, exit the lowest level of the ferry. Walk towards the parking lot and the terminal’s entrance doors. Turn left before the entrance doors and follow tall, blue signs marked “Bay Street Landing.” You’ll walk under two overpasses with a high stone wall to your left and a security fence to your right.
The Staten Island Ferry is always FREE and leaves from Manhattan from South Ferry/ Whitehall to the St. George Terminal on Staten Island.
