Early Morning Opening

The Intrepid Museum offers Early Morning Openings for children with autism and their families before the Museum opens to the public! Families receive a sensory bag with interactive activities designed for the whole family, and explore the Museum without the crowds! Participants receive a social narrative ahead of time.

Aircraft Onboard

Welcome aboard! See aircraft from World War II to the Cold War, learn about their similarities and differences, and get up close to a helicopter, all before the Museum opens to the public.

Families must check in between 8:30am and 9:30am. After the Museum opens to the public at 10:00am, the interactive Exploreum will have special activities and stay closed to the public until 11:00am.
