Time Out says

UPDATE: From April 1–8, 2020, Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will light the USS Intrepid in red and white to honor work from healthcare professionals the arrival of the USNS Comfort. “Lighting Intrepid is a symbolic way to say thank you to those near and far who are putting their own health at risk for the greater good,” the museum's president, Susan Marenoff-Zausner, said in a statement. “We are also grateful for the USNS Comfort and to those serving on board, who are coming to aid New York City and provide relief during this crisis.” Although the museum is currently closed, you can check out its virtual offerings online. 

For little ones, the highlight of the aircraft carrier turned science museum is the Exploreum, an indoor activity zone divided into areas with nautical, aviation, cosmos and life themes. In traversing the zone, kids get to board small boats, learn why huge metal ships don't sink, wander around the living quarters of the Intrepid's former crew and try on astronaut gloves.
