Location & Directions


The Noble Maritime Collection is located in Building D on the grounds of Snug Harbor Cultural Center, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301.

There is plenty of free parking available, including handicap parking spaces. The Snug Harbor campus is accessible through gates on both the east and west sides of the site. The directions below will direct you to the east gate located on Fillmore Street. Once you enter the gate, make an immediate right and you will see the parking area.

Once parked, follow the signs directing you towards the Noble Maritime Collection. There are five Greek revival style buildings in a row along the front of the site (near the waterfront and Richmond Terrace). If you were to stand with your back to the water, Building D is the second building from the left of these five. There is both a front and back entrance to the museum. The back door on Shinbone Alley is handicap accessible, with an elevator just inside the lobby. Ring the bell on the side of either door and our staff will welcome you.
