Looking for local things to do with the kids while they’re off for February break? The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in NYC has tons to keep them entertained from February 18-24 during Kids Week. From activities to workshops to hands-on demos, the theme Science Is Everywhere! will have them looking at the world from a whole new perspective.

The Sunday to Saturday schedule is as follows:

The Science of Sports and Games (Feb. 18-19): Young athletes can practice their skills while learning the science behind their fave games. Discover the physics behind the perfect pitch, practice swinging a golf club with a pro, meet the New York Mets mascot, Mr. Met, and more.

The Science of Arts and Music (Feb. 20-21): Mini creatives can marvel at Broadway performances, try their hand at drawing and puppets, craft a comic book and more. They’ll even get a chance to meet Nickelodeon’s Shimmer and Shine.

Science and the Natural World (Feb. 22-24): Meet creatures like a penguin and a kangaroo before blasting off into a convo with NASA astronauts and engineers. Then, tinker with robotics experiments.

Not only is all of this nearby, but it’s free with admission! NYC residents get in for $17-19, while out-of-state visitors can get in for $33 (adults) or $24 (kids 5-12). Admission grants you access to Kids Week, the Space Shuttle Pavilion, Submarine Growler and all other exhibitions.

The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is located at Pier 86 on W. 46th St. and 12th Ave. in New York, NY. For more information, visit intrepidmuseum.org or call 877-957-SHIP (7447).
