Donate to the Intrepid Museum



The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is temporarily closed until further notice.

While the Museum is closed the Education Department is committed to providing enrichment opportunities for our audiences. We offer a number of Online Resources, Online School Programs & Virtual Learning programs to support learning from home. We look forward to working with you again at the earliest opportunity! Can’t get to the Museum? Schedule a virtual field trip for your school or community group.

Our distance learning programs take the video conference out of the office and into the Museum to provide an authentic experience of our exhibits and artifacts, no matter where you live.

Current Programs

Aviation Science (Grades 3–12)
Students will discuss the parts of a plane and how nature influences shape and design. Educators will demonstrate the four forces of flight, and students will experiment with these concepts before creating their own simple flying machines. Classes will also explore the aircraft carrier Intrepid and examine the machinery that makes flight at sea possible.

Aviation Science Programs are proudly supported by:

Space Science (Grades K–12)
Students will get a tour of the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home of the space shuttle Enterprise. An educator will discuss the Mercury-Atlas 7 and Gemini 3 missions during the Space Race, including Intrepid’s role as the primary recovery vessel for both missions. Students will learn about the vacuum of space and why astronauts need spacecraft and spacesuits when they venture into Earth’s orbit and beyond.
