What better way is there to spend your day than by coming to the Intrepid Museum to learn about history and science? Scout programs and activities are designed to help children earn requirements towards their Badges, Interest Projects, Loops or Try-Its.
On Scout Days children can participate in fun activities with museum educators and volunteers. Generally, children can participate in make-it and take-it activities and will be able to hear from speakers to learn about such topics as aviation, water conservation, civic duty or engineering. Activities take place between 11:00am and 2:30pm.
Join us for our Scout Days on:
  • November 14, 2015, and April 9, 2016 – Astronomy Days
    Learn the ins and outs of amateur astronomy from Museum educators, as well as the important role the stars play for pilots and astronauts navigating through the sky. Visit our pop-up planetarium, and learn how to use binoculars and telescopes on the flight deck of Intrepid. Examine our collection of spacecraft, including the space shuttle Enterprise, the Soyuz capsule, and replicas of the Mercury and Gemini capsules, and hear stories about the men and women who have made space exploration possible. Workshops take place between 11:00am and 2:30pm. During Astronomy Days, Cubs Scouts will work on their Astronomy Belt Loops and Academics Pins while Boy Scouts will work toward their Astronomy Merit Badges.

  • May 14, 2016 – Science in Motion Day
    Intrepid is now a museum, a National Historic Landmark and a continual reminder of human ingenuity. Spend the day with Museum educators and learn about the science involved in problem solving on an aircraft carrier. Be inspired by the machines and inventions—from aircraft elevators to steam catapults—that have made advancements in aviation and life at sea possible. Workshops take place between 11:00am and 2:30pm. During Science in Motion Day, Cub Scouts will work on their Science Belt Loops and Academics Pins while Boy Scouts will work on their Aviation Merit Badges.
