Build A Lighthouse That Lights Up At Brilliant Minds, National Lighthouse Museum


Last week we had a great time In Brilliant Minds. We planted in coastal soil, learned to tend an oil lamp and learned some knots. 

Join us this Saturday from 9:30 – 11:00 to build a lighthouse of your own that actually lights up! Looking forward to seeing you there!

National Lighthouse Museum

The National Lighthouse Museum’s Board of Trustees, Advisors and FRIENDS are dedicated to the full development of the National Lighthouse Museum on the site of the US Light House Service General Depot on Staten Island from 1864 to 1939. Partnering with government agencies, non-profits, corporations, foundations, and other organizations, we will work to promote and support historical, educational, cultural, recreational, and other related activities at the site, while maintaining the navigational significance and maritime heritage of lighthouses throughout the world. The Mission is in consonance with the Purposes of the National Lighthouse Museum as they are documented in Article II of the museum by-laws:
