  • Sea View Museum
    The Stiversa Bethel Healthcare museum is located in the former Nurse's residence on the grounds of Sea View Hospital Rehabilitation Center and Home. It is the only healthcare museum of its type in New York State and contains several artifacts that otherwise would only be found in the Smithsonian Institute. Exhibits include memorabilia from the Farm Colony, the county's former poorhouse, that depict the goods and services produced by the residents. It also contains many of the instruments that were used to treat tuberculosis, a dreaded disease that claimed tens of thousands of lives worldwide during the early to mid 1900's.

    The museum is open to the public and tours are available upon request. Each year hundreds of students visit the museum. A visit to the museum provides an opportunity to learn the major role Sea View played in developing a treatment and cure for tuberculosis. You will learn about the surgical instruments used, the effects of TB on the human body, see a child's incubator dating back to the 1940's, and view many more artifacts dating back to the turn of the 20th century.

    To schedule a tour call Sea View's Education Department at (718) 317-3354.
