Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Kids Week 2015



If you live in New York you know there is nothing like exploring our own great city anytime of the year. We enjoy making a day in New York City , showing main man the culture, sites, visiting favorite restaurants and of course throwing in a bit of education and history.

During February StayCation break we try to plan as many visits to NYC as possible. When we first hears of Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Kids Week 2015 we all agreed this is something that has been on our family bucket list. I visited the Intrepid many years ago and what better way to reconnect with my youth than to revisit and see it through the eyes of my son.


The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will host their annual Kids Week from Monday, February 16 – Saturday, February 21.  During Kids Week, children will have the opportunity to participate in dozens of fun, educational and interactive activities the whole family will enjoy.

Families can learn about the stars in our pop-up planetarium, watch exciting science demonstrations or get an up-close look at live birds of prey. Explore high-flying science with workshops, screenings, and a host of special guests including NASA engineers, space scientists, aviators, and children’s book authors.

Great news! Who loves the musical BIG!? This October 11-12, 15-19 10 PERFORMANCES ONLY will be FEATURING JOHN TARTAGLIA AND KERRY BUTLER!!!


Josh Baskin is just like any other angst-ridden teenager – he can’t wait to grow up. Too bad you have to get through adolescence first. But when Josh makes a wish to be “big” at a carnival and wakes up the next morning in the body of a 30-year-old man, he learns how complicated adulthood can be.

This presentation of Big marks the New York premiere of the script and score created by the authors for the show’s national tour – a significantly revised version of the show with eight new Maltby and Shire songs, never recorded and rarely heard.

Nature of Muftis: Quick sketches of Broadway shows that lets an audience focus on the story, the score and not the production values. With amazing Broadway casts, all done in an intimate 175 seat theater.

This is a new version of the show that has never before been seen in NYC. It contains 6 new songs by Maltby & Shire that are not on the recording of the show. Tickets Just $34 – Special US Family Guide Discount to Big The Musical – Tickets Just $34 with promo code: MUFTI34 @usfg

**Disclaimer** Main Street Mama will be given a family four pack of tickets in compensation for this post. We loved Big The Movie can’t wait to see Big The Musical
