Learn about history, science and service while earning requirements for badges, interest projects, loops or try-its.


Come 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 participate in fun activities with Museum educators and volunteers. Generally, children participate in make-it and take-it activities and hear from speakers about aviation, water conservation, civic duty and engineering. Activities take place between 11:00am and 2:30pm.


Stay tuned for upcoming Scout Day dates.
