    Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

    Since 1982, the aircraft carrier Intrepid has been open to the public as the heart of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Commissioned in 1943, Intrepid was built to defeat the Empire of Japan, but frequent overhauls and refittings extended her service through the Cold War, the space race, and the Vietnam War. The Intrepid Museum collects archival materials and artifacts that pertain to Intrepid’s service history. Museum staff use these collections to illuminate the “humanity behind the hardware” – the stories of the 50,000 men who served aboard the ship over her three-decade Navy career. Join the curatorial and collections staff of the Intrepid Museum for a tour of the Museum’s newly constructed collections storage space. Museum staff will present key items from the archives and will explore the ways in which these materials bring to life the experiences of the ship’s sailors, aviators, and marines.

    Space is limited to 45 participants for this event. Please be sure you can attend the full session prior to RSVP. Travel details and security protocol to follow with confirmed reservations.
