Designed with the homeschooling community in mind, Homeschool Days feature talks and programs focused on the National Historic Landmark Intrepid and the Museum’s aircraft. Appropriate for a range of ages and abilities, activities include an educator-led tour of the Museum and a chance to explore various topics through historic artifacts, photographs and demonstrations. Students and their families also get time to explore the Museum on their own and go on a self-guided scavenger hunt!

  • Upcoming Homeschool Days

    Astronauts Aboard
    Friday, January 11, 10:00am–2:00pm

    In the early days of space exploration, American astronauts were launched into space by rockets and then landed in the ocean, where they were retrieved by U.S. Navy ships. Astronauts Scott Carpenter, Gus Grissom and John Young walked the decks of Intrepid after their space missions over 50 years ago. Learn more about space exploration by viewing the space shuttle orbiter Enterprise and the Museum’s artifacts. Explore the historical spaces of the ship, see exhibits with a Museum educator, and enjoy hands-on STEM activities all about an astronaut’s journey into space. Space-themed apparel welcome!

    Homeschool Day admission is $10.50 for non-members and $6 for Museum members. Space is limited.

    Registration opens on December 14, 2018.

    Registration is required for all homeschool programs. Some activities have limited space.

  • Homeschool on the Hudson


Hello homeschool parents and educators!

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is offering a new program called Homeschool on the Hudson—a three-session course exclusively for homeschool students ages 8 to 12. Each course will meet for two and a half hours once a week, over a period of three weeks. During the course, students will explore one topic deeply.

  • Primary and Secondary Sources

    Course Description:
    Commemorating the 75th anniversary of Intrepid’s commissioning, the inaugural Homeschool on the Hudson course will focus on the ship’s history. During this course, students will learn about the role of a curator in the museum setting, analyze historical artifacts and photographs, explore various parts of the ship and create their own exhibit using objects from the Museum’s collection. Students will also learn about various ways curators inform their decisions when creating exhibits and speak to Museum staff and veterans. Activities will be appropriate for a range of ages and abilities.

    Exclusively for homeschool students ages 8–12.

    Class size:
    Courses are limited to 10 students. There will be two staff members present for each cohort of 10 students.

    December 3, 10 and 17, 10:00am–12:30pm

    $150 for the full three-session course.
