There is a lot of excitement coming up at the Museum in 2018. Check out a few highlights below!

75th Anniversary of Intrepid’s Commissioning: All year

Intrepid was commissioned on August 16, 1943, marking the birthday of this legendary ship. In honor of this milestone, we’re celebrating all year long! Throughout the year, the Museum will offer special programs and events that celebrate Intrepid—past, present and future—and the men who served on board. Keep an eye on the website for upcoming programs!

Kids Week: February 18–24
Bring your kids to the Museum during the school break, and add a little wonder to their day and yours. Discover science in your favorite places—from the basketball court to your backyard—during fun-filled activities all week long, including pop-up planetarium shows, demos by athletes, talks by astronauts, art workshops and more—all free with admission. Get tickets here!

AstroCafé: Evenings throughout the year

Head to the Museum after work to sip drinks beneath the space shuttle and hear talks about cutting-edge discoveries in space and science. These events—exclusively for adults over 21—are free to attend!

Fleet Week: May 23–28
Join us for a week of festivities when the ships come in! The Museum will offer free activities on the pier and special events throughout the week, including the popular Battle of the Big Bands on the flight deck.

Summer Movie Series: Evenings in July and August

Cool off this summer with a movie on the ship’s flight deck, under the stars. Each week, the Museum will show popular movies set in sea, air and space. Bring a blanket and snacks, and watch for free! It’s too hard to limit this list to five, so we’re going to sneak in one more: Space & Science Festival will return this summer to dazzle you with feats of innovation and exploration, on this planet and beyond. Things are looking up!
