Aug 19, 2013 - Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, New York City

One of the best ways for students to learn is to bring them out of the classrooms for a field trip, so that they get to see and experience what they are learning from the books. For teachers, this is also a way for the students to enjoy learning a particular subject. With the help of a professional school bus charter, teachers will not have any problems when it comes to having to arrange to bring the whole class out for a trip to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum at 12th Avenue & 46th Street, Pier 86, New York City.

When you make plans to rent a New York City school bus for the trip to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, be sure to check beforehand if the museum is open on the day that you would like to have the trip there, as the museum is closed at certain dates and days of the year for maintenance purpose. Also, they have different kinds of tours available for groups with more than 15 people, as well as customized tour experiences for their visitors. Depending on the time allowance that you have for your group, you can choose tours that are between 45 minutes and 100 minutes; with the exception to the VIP tour, where it is a customized tour session, hence the time would be determined by your group. Unfortunately, the audio tours are not available at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, hence everyone will have to pay attention to the guide when you are being taken to the various parts of the museum and shown the exhibits and displays. Personal cameras and video is allowed during the tours but the professional equipment as well as the use of tripods is not allowed though.

The Intrepid is anchored along the West River that has been turned into a Sea, Air & Space Museum. As you and your group enter into the museum, you will see that there is a Concorde and submarine inside while on the top the deck, you will see choppers and jets all lined along the sides that will also lead you to the Space Shuttle pavilion. If this is your first outing to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum with your students in a rented New York City bus, there is nothing you should worry about, as the bus driver would know where to drop you and your group off and pick all of you up later. Just be sure that you have everyone waiting and ready to board the bus at the appointed time. Enjoy the tour!
