Ask the Experts

Lectures, Readings, Performances

It's the program where we bring interesting people together to hear other interesting people talk about interesting things! The schedule may vary, but it's always worth hearing.

Past lectures have included Coaster Enthusiasts, flea circuses, bio artists, amusement park owners, executive directors of major cultural institutions, geeks, historians, authors, and doctoral candidates. You don't have to have a degree to talk in the Coney Island Museum, but you do have to think you're an expert!

Included with Coney Island Museum Admission, $5 for Adults, $3 for Seniors, Kids (under 12) and residents of  Zip Code 11224. Free for members of Coney Island USA!
