New Member Benefits!

Two of Staten Island’s cultural centers, Historic Richmond Town and The Alice Austen House, have come together to offer reciprocal admissions benefits for their respective members.

Admission will be based on the number of individuals that your selected membership covers. For example, Alice Austen House’s Family level membership offers free admission for up to two adults and four children and can enjoy general admission access to Historic Richmond Town.

Please note that reciprocal benefits only count for regular general admission. Reciprocity excludes all public programs, separately ticketed events, special events, fundraisers, or otherwise noted. Be sure to check each organization’s website and calendar to make sure general admissions are being accepted when you plan to make a visit.

We are incredibly excited to offer this new perk to all of our members, and we are excited to see you all across the Island!

“From the outside, this charming cottage looks like any other late 17th-century Dutch Colonial House. Step inside, and you’ll soon discover it was the home base for one of New York’s most celebrated female photographers.”
