Long Island Museums

Long Island is home to over one hundred museums – boasting exhibits in the fields of science, history, aeronautics, art, local culture, and more. With so many great museums locally, no matter what you are passionate to learn about, you won’t have to travel far – there are plenty of museums in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties that boast a variety of different exhibits and monuments. In addition to offering walk-through exhibits, many of these museums also offer guided or school tours, so you are able to maximize your learning experience, and get the most out of your trip to the museum. Some even offer hands on programs and summer camps that let you get a real behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the museum, and the history that it holds.
