This year will be filled with fun, education and excitement at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. From our annual Kids Week to a new temporary exhibit, there is plenty to see and do in 2014 aboard Intrepid!
Our annual Kids Week will take place from February 15-23, 2014, featuring themes such as sports and games, Intrepid’s Ports of Call, safari adventure and superheroes.
Kids Week is nine days of entertainment, education, and excitement! Learn about 3D printing or robotics in hands-on workshops during our Science Meets Science Fiction Weekend, or get active with local New York sports teams over Sports 'N Games Weekend. Visit the Museum during the week to watch performances from Broadway's best, or to see demonstrations with live animals from around the world.
Have a special birthday coming up in 2014? Spend your child’s birthday aboard Intrepid, with a special all-inclusive birthday party package featuring admission to the Museum and submarine Growler, two Intrepid Museum party hosts, food packages and a special birthday cake made by City Cakes. In 2013, the Intrepid Museum was voted #1 Birthday Party Spot by Time Out New York Kids and offers themes including Astronaut, Pilot, Treasure Hunt and Spy!
The Museum will also debut a new temporary exhibition opening in Winter 2014. Stay tuned for more information. Meanwhile, the Museum’s pop-up exhibit, Working Below Decks, is continuing its extended run, and will close on February 4, 2014. In the Space Shuttle Pavilion, guests can enjoy daily education demonstrations about Life in a Vacuum and, on Saturdays and Sundays, Tour Guide Talks about Project Mercury. Check the Museum’s website for updates on all programs and events.
Starting in January, the Intrepid Museum also begins its weekly programming for Cultural After School Adventures (CASA). CASA pairs New York City Schools with culturally- and community-based organizations throughout the five boroughs. Each institution brings expertise in diverse subject areas to students throughout New York City, sending educators to the appointed schools for weekly programs. The Intrepid Museum is excited to continue this program, which is made possible with discretionary funds from the New York City Council in partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs.
