Exhibitions at Historic Richmond Town take many different forms.

In the Visitor Center, Third County Courthouse: Center of Civic Life on Staten Island tells of that building's role in local and national history and provides orientation as you prepare to tour Historic Richmond Town.

Traditional museum gallery exhibits in the Historical Museum focus on American culture and the history and traditions of Staten Island. Made on Staten Island, Bringing Up Baby; and Toys! offer hundreds of unique artifacts to explore. An interactive wall map identifies current and past place names for the island's many distinctive neighborhoods.

Furnished interiors throughout Historic Richmond Town present collections in a different way. In kitchens, bedrooms, workshops and parlors, you can see household items, furniture, tools, and other artifacts in settings that suggest their original use.

The experience of being at Historic Richmond Town is an opportunity to choose your own path to learning. You will approach places and objects on your own terms, sharing your own memories, coming to your own conclusions and gaining new perspectives on the past. You may find yourself moved to deep reflection or inspired to new possibilities by the unique, sometimes magical sensation of communing with authentic places and things.
