Event description
The Intrepid Museum offers Access Family Programs for children with developmental or learning disabilities and their families!

About this event

Access Family Programs (children ages 5-17)

The Intrepid Museum offers programs for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families on select Sundays during regular Museum hours. Families take a guided, interactive tour of the Museum and can participate in activities that everyone can enjoy.

Navigation: Finding Your Way!

From ships and planes to submarines and even space shuttles, vessels of all types use navigation to find their way. Families will explore historic spaces and methods that people have used to navigate at sea and up high, and will make connections to how we find our way today.

Check-in begins at 10:30am. Please arrive before 11:00am in order to participate in the full program.

Looking for a program for older visitors? This program will be offered again from 2:00 to 4:00pm for teens and adults with developmental disabilities and their families. Register for the teen and adult program here.

Health and Safety:

More details about health guidelines and policies will be sent to all registrants ahead of the program, along with the pre-visit materials. In the meantime, learn more here: intrepidmuseum.org/onboard-with-safety.
