STORIES WITHIN


The Intrepid Museum offers Stories Within for individuals with dementia and their care partners.

2019-2020 Series

Intrepid’s Stories Within: Look, Listen & Wander
Workshops bring Intrepid's history to life through exploration of the ship's service in the 40s, 50s or 60s. Participants will explore Intrepid's role in World War II, the Space Race or Vietnam War through photographs taken aboard the ship, while listening to the decade’s top tunes. Following a discussion around the images, participants are invited to get creative and construct mixed media artworks inspired by the era.

Offsite art workshops are free but registration is required. To register for the offsite art series, please contact community@intrepidmuseum.org or call 646-381-5162.
