The museum is celebrating its thirtieth year of operation this year, offering a variety of educational program intermingling science and history. It offers an interactive tour featuring original artifacts, video footage and exhibits such as a flight simulator as well as its newest exhibit, The Space Shuttle Pavilion, where you can actually walk beneath the historic artifact, the Space Shuttle Enterprise.

The first of the two programs will be on this coming Saturday, September 22 at 2:30 p.m. titled The USS Intrepid presents "Restoring History". At this program tailored toward adults one can learn how Museum staff actually restores historic spaces and retired aircraft.

The second program, Code Breakers, is geared toward teens. Participants will learn a bit about how codes have been used since the dawn of recorded history, as well as create their own codes. This program will be on Tuesday, September 25 at 4:00 p.m.

A selection of books about the sea air and space exploration as well as using code is available at the New York Public Library.
