Please note that astronauts will only be signing autographs in the Exploreum Interactive Hall and the Lutnick Theater Presentation locations. Astronaut appearances are subject to change.

NASA will have an active presence at SpaceFest, and its exhibit, Innovate – Explore – Discover – Inspire, will highlight NASA's missions to understand and protect Planet Earth, conduct research on the International Space Station, extend human reach into deep space, and to explore our solar system and beyond. Check the website for more information about the activities taking place during SpaceFest 2013!

In addition to the astronaut appearances, be sure to participate in interactive displays from our partners, an astronomy night, a free screening of Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) on the Flight Deck, and more. And of course check out the recently reopened Space Shuttle Pavilion, featuring Enterprise.

All activities taking place on Pier 86 are free to the public, while programs and activities inside the Museum and the Space Shuttle Pavilion require purchasing Museum admission. The Intrepid Museum will have extended hours throughout SpaceFest, open 10:00am to 6:00pm from July 25 to 28.
