Intrepid Museum exhibit (and free stuff) at LaGuardia Airport

In anticipation of the November 8th re-opening of New York City’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, an exhibit about the famed aircraft carrier is on view now in the Central Terminal at LaGuardia Airport.

The exhibit runs through Nov. 8, 2008 and includes memorabilia from the Intrepid, replicas of fighter planes that have launched from the aircraft carrier, interactive educational displays, and an “Art in Motion” program that invites travelers to paint a large model airplane.

The opening of the Intrepid Museum exhibit is part of Aviation Week activities hosted by the Food & Shops at LGA’s Central Terminal. Festivities include a week-long sidewalk sale, food sampling, and free airplane-themed balloons and stickers for kids. Through November 20th, travelers can also enter a contest to win one of the exhibited model airplanes as well as tickets to the museum.
