Weekend/Holiday in New York City

I will be staying in New York City for a week which includes the July 4th holiday. We arrive on a Wednesday evening and leave the following Wednesday. We already have our list of things to do and see, but was wondering if there are certain days of the week that are best for each attraction. I've read that weekends are really busy at the museums, so I wanted to know what attractions might be best for Sat, Sun and Mon (4th of July).

Museum of Natural History

Circle Line Full Island Cruise

Empire State Building

Guggenheim Museum

Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum

Museum of Modern Art

Statue of Liberty

Central Park

Any suggestions?

The weekends are usually busy but because of the holiday, it may work in reverse, I'm not sure. You may want to plan your agenda around the weather. If it's a beautiful day you would rather be in Central Park, Statue of Liberty or Circle Line. I would check the weather for that week as it draws closer and save the museums for dreary days.
