Museum Row

Museum Row, a one stop destination for some of Long Island’s finest museums, is located on Charles Lindbergh Boulevard in Garden City, adjacent to Nassau County Community College and within steps of Mitchel Field and the Nassau County Veterans Memorial Coliseum.  Home to the Long Island Children’s Museum, the Nassau County Firefighter’s Museum, and the Cradle of Aviation Museum, Museum Row is constantly growing and developing with new and exciting exhibits and events. Museum Row will play an integral role in County Executive Ed Mangano's vision for the Nassau Centre. Nassau County’s Museum Row is the perfect place for exploration, discovery, and just plain fun!

Home to legendary aircraft including Charles Lindberg's Jenny and an actual Lunar Excursion Module built on Long Island, the Cradle of Aviation celebrates Long Island's contributions to American aviation. In addition to permanent and changing exhibits, the museum incorporates educational programs and an IMAX theater. Click here for the Cradle of Aviation Website.

The 40,000-square-foot Long Island Children's Museum provides children and families with a wonderfully nurturing environment in which to enjoy hands-on exhibits; art, music and science workshops; and family-focused concerts and films. Click here for the Long Island Children's Museum Website.

The Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center provides a unique setting for visitors to learn about the heritage of our local volunteer fire services and, through a series of interactive exhibits, experience valuable lessons in fire safety and prevention.Click here for the Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center Website.

The Long Island Museum for Science and Technology ("LIMSAT") is currently a work in progress, but when established on Museum Row LIMSAT will offer interactive science and technology exhibits to teach the importance of science in our lives. There are plans for LIMSAT to become a part of the Cradle of Aviation Museum, enhancing the institution with hands-on science and technology exhibits.
