Head to this on-the-water institution at Pier 86 on the Hudson River for a day packed with space-themed activities. The Space Shuttle Pavilion's orbiter Enterprise takes center stage here. Families can walk under the historic vehicle and step up to a platform for a picture-perfect perspective. The pavilion also features a space capsule, recordings of mission control dialogue and 17 stations packed with artifacts, audio, video and photos that depict the shuttle's role in advancing space travel. Check the museum's calendar for tours and other events that complement the pavilion's displays.
