Diving into Density
How does Intrepid float? How did Growler dive? Take a tour of our massive aircraft carrier, and explore our interactive exhibit Submerged. Then dive and surface with your own submarine by creating a Cartesian diver in our workshop.

High-Flying Design
Make the best and most unique paper airplanes around while learning about the four forces of flight.

Star Stories
Take a trip inside the Intrepid Museum’s planetarium to learn myths from around the world that explain the stars in the sky. Then create your own constellation and myth in a storytelling activity.

Flying in Style
There’s more to aircraft than wings and engines. Get up close to the aircraft in our collection to learn how symbols and paint schemes set each airplane apart. Then head back to the classroom to create a family squadron insignia and decorate an airplane.

Sometimes you just need to slow down—especially when you’re plummeting to Earth after a trip to outer space. In this out-of-this-world workshop, you’ll learn about Intrepid’s role in the Space Race and then drop parachutes to see how space capsules came back down to Earth safely.

Jobs on Deck
Planes don’t put themselves in the air, especially on an aircraft carrier like Intrepid. For naval aviators to take flight from an aircraft carrier, they need a whole team of people and the power of a steam catapult. Take on the roles of the flight deck crew in this interactive tour that follows aircraft from the hangar deck to the air and back again.
