Here's what parents are saying:

"I wanted to reach out and let you know how much we were blown away by the fantastic Intrepid birthday party for our son. It was, without a doubt, the BEST party we have ever had for one of our kids here in the city! Several parents are still raving about how much fun the kids had and Malcolm talks about it every day. I can't think of a better way to have celebrated the big '5." – Tanya

"I just wanted to take a moment to tell you again how happy we were with William's Birthday Party experience! You all made it such a wonderful event! The kids were enthralled, the parents were engaged and the birthday boy's parents were relaxed. Perfect!" – Suzanna

"Just a note of thanks to you and the wonderful staff who supported an epic birthday party that both children and adults thoroughly enjoyed. The day was fun, educational, exciting… and, again, fun." – Dave and Cecile

"It was great! Really thought the hosts did an amazing job keeping the kids (and adults) educated and engaged. Intrepid puts on a great show!" – Denis Gallagher

"Our party host distinguished herself as a wonderful, energetic host with a keen sense of how to appeal to five-year-olds. She controlled the group with great grace and skill and engaged them throughout. In sum, the party was a great success and we thank you for a great day on the Intrepid." – Drs. Michael & Suzanne Garfinkle


VIRTUAL BIRTHDAY PARTIES Celebrate your child’s next birthday party at home with the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum! Our online celebrations are 45 minutes. An educator will take your group on a virtual tour of the Intrepid Museum, where children will learn about the history of the ship and the crew who served from 1943-1974. All programs are adjusted to be age appropriate and will vary according to the age of the group. To reserve your group, please email or call 646-381-5010 and a representative will be in touch with you right away. A registration fee of $75 per group applies.
