Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum- Kids Week 2013

A couple of weeks back I received an e-mail from a friend about an event coming up at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. 

I’ve been wanting to visit the Intrepid for a while now, especially to see the Space Shuttle Enterprise so the event sounded like a great reason to visit. (Too bad the Space Shuttle Pavilion is currently closed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy. It is scheduled to reopen in the spring.)

Kids Week 2013 is coming to the Intrepid from February 16- 24. 
Lucas might be a bit young for most of the special events taking place for Kids Week but Kim and I are still going to try to take him. This past weekend, Lucas visited his first children’s museum and had a blast. I feel that it’s never too soon to expose little ones to new activities & experiences. It’s also great for him to be around other kids.

According to the Intrepid website:

Intrepid Museum’s Kids Week offers fun-filled entertainment the whole family will enjoy. Participate in hands-on activities from our partners, including performances, games, cool demonstrations and more. Kids Week is action packed and filled with excitement!

There is a schedule of activities for each day of Kids Week online. If you are thinking of going make sure to check it out and pick a day where the activities seem best for you and your kiddies. If Kim and I decide to go, it would most likely be on a Saturday or Sunday.

My favorite days are actually during the first weekend. The theme for February 16-17 is called “Under the Big Top”. Some of these events sound like they would be fun for Lucas to see.
