Established on the site of the US Light House Service General Depot on Staten Island, National Lighthouse Museum grew out the lighthouse preservation movement that began in the 1980s with the idea of saving the country's maritime heritage. The museum permanent exhibits include displays of model lighthouses (more than 180 in all), lanterns and other installations devoted to recounting the history of lighthouses (from ancient times to the present) and the daily routine of lighthouse keepers.
