The Coney Island Museum is a small but informative museum dedicated to preserving the history of Coney Island. The museum features Coney Island memorabilia like the Steeplechase Horse, the Boardwalk Rolling Chair, Funhouse Distortion Mirrors, and antique souvenirs. Relics of old rides, including vintage bumper cars, bring you back to Coney Island's heyday. With a changing exhibition schedule that showcases items like Mermaid Parade photos, this museum's a bargain at 99 cents! A knowledgeable staff can answer any questions on Coney Island, and Coney Island historians hold an "Ask the Expert" lecture series on Sundays at 4 pm during the summer months.
