Free Fridays at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Returns this year of 2023

Intrepid Museum’s Free Fridays Series Kicks Off On Friday, April 28

The Intrepid Museum’s Free Fridays are back with fun-filled activities and educational experiences! The 2022 series kicks off on Friday, April 28, at the Intrepid Museum located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue). Events begin at 5:00pm, with free general admission for all visitors through 9:00pm. 

On the last Friday of April, June, July, August and September, the Intrepid Museum will open its doors for FREE! Visitors can explore the Museum and enjoy a variety of free after-hours programming.

This month, visitors can head to the Space Shuttle Pavilion for a panel discussion about art in space featuring former NASA astronaut Nicole Stott and Inspiration4 astronaut Dr. Sian Proctor, moderated by former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino. A live stream of the panel will be available on Facebook and YouTube.

Visitors can also hear from C Bangs, the artist behind the holographic art displayed on the new temporary exhibit in the Space Shuttle Pavilion, Postcards from Earth: Holograms on an Interstellar Journey. The exhibit showcases an inspiring collaboration between science and art as a means to reach other star systems at speeds never thought to be achievable. 

Museum Educators will be on hand with interactive demonstrations and hands-on activities. Local astronomers will be on the flight deck with high-powered telescopes to help visitors navigate the night sky and answer questions about astronomy and stargazing. Guests are welcome to bring their own binoculars or look through the telescopes of the experts.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be available for select Intrepid Museum demonstrations, the Art in Space Panel, and telescope viewing on the flight deck.

Sign up for a reminder here…

There’s something for everyone during Free Fridays. Please refer to detailed program descriptions for registration requirements. There will be no access to the submarine Growler or Concorde during Free Fridays. Last entry is 8:30pm. Program schedule is subject to change. For updated Free Fridays info, visit www.intrepidmuseum.org.

Free Fridays are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. Free Fridays are supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
