Curious what it would be like to sleep on an aircraft carrier? Here’s your chance!

Spend a night aboard Intrepid during Operation Slumber—overnight visits for organized youth groups and families!

Operation Slumber is an experience you will remember forever. Enjoy exclusive, after-hours access to Intrepid and the Space Shuttle Pavilion, and sleep among the aircraft on the hangar deck, just like enlisted sailors once did. Overnights include educational activities, tours and talks, unlimited rides in our new 4D flight simulator, pop-up planetarium shows and meals (snacks and breakfast). Kids also receive a goodie bag with Intrepid souvenirs and a T-shirt!

Operation Slumber is a great way for young people to experience life aboard an aircraft carrier. It’s ideal for scout troops, school groups and camp groups with kids ages 6–17.

Space is limited. Call 646-381-5010 or email groupsales@intrepidmuseum.org to reserve your spot today.
Museum members enjoy a special discount on Operation Slumber. Become a member at the Family level for this benefit and more!
