For Educators

A Center for History and Innovation

The Intrepid Museum has delivered quality education programming for more than 35 years. As a center for history and innovation, our education programs amplify the real experiences of those on the frontlines of history and the stories behind the engineering marvels in our collection. We provide an environment where curious individuals of all ages and abilities are invited to experience wonder, ask questions and are inspired to seek creative solutions to the 21st century’s greatest challenges.
