(5827)

Through exhibitions, educational programming and the foremost collection of technologically groundbreaking aircraft and vessels, visitors of all ages and abilities are taken on an interactive journey through history to learn about American innovation and bravery. The Intrepid Museum was founded in 1982 with the acquisition of the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, now a National Historic Landmark, which served tours of duty in World War II and the Vietnam War, and was a recovery vessel for the Gemini and Mercury space missions. Welcoming over one million visitors annually, the Museum includes the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle that paved the way for America’s successful Space Shuttle Program. On display are more than two dozen authentically restored aircraft, including the Lockheed A-12 Blackbird, the world’s fastest military jet and spy plane, and the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean. The Museum also includes the submarine Growler, the only American diesel-powered strategic missile submarine open to the public; the Exploreum Interactive Hall, a fully interactive exhibit space; an 18,000 sq. ft. education center; and Pier 86, a publicly accessible pier that is part of the Hudson River Park Trust. The mission of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is to promote the awareness and understanding of history, science and service through its collections, exhibitions and programming in order to honor our heroes, educate the public and inspire our youth. The new Intrepid Museum is a unique journey filled with spectacular interactive exhibits and virtual, multi-sensory technology. The Intrepid Museum is a dynamic adventure for visitors of all ages and offers group packages, member benefits, birthday parties, special event packages and educational programs. Located at 12th Avenue and 46th Street, Intrepid is easy to get to by mass transit, car or water taxi. Learn more: http://www.intrepidmuseum.org/

Join the Intrepid Museum and fellow veterans, service members and their loved ones for a virtual staycation. We will be Zooming into the Washington, DC area, at faster than Mach 3, to visit the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution. Dr. Michael Hankins will discuss the fascinating history of supersonic jets, how they were made, and how they were used. Chris Reddersen and Kate Good will then focus on the preservation efforts of these iconic planes and compare and contrast the deceptively similar Lockheed A-12 at the Intrepid Museum and SR-71 Blackbird at the National Air and Space Museum. https://bit.ly/3tmPWCM

The Intrepid Museum joins the nation in mourning the death of a true American pioneer, NASA astronaut Michael Collins. Michael Collins was famously alone in the Apollo 11 command module, orbiting 60 miles above the Moon while his colleagues became the first men to land on and explore the surface below. He was out of communication with NASA Mission Control and his crewmates for more than 45 minutes at a time as he orbited around the far side of the Moon. He always dismissed the idea that this position was a lonely one. A man of determination and fortitude, his steadfast focus remained on the mission and bringing his crewmates back safely. We are grateful to Michael Collins as a leader and an explorer. His legacy will continue to inspire generations to come.

April 27 - Intrepid Adventures: Jobs on Deck

With 3,200 sailors aboard Intrepid, it’s no wonder it was called a “city at sea!” Living on a naval ship proved to be both challenging and exciting. Learn more about what it was like to live aboard Intrepid during this immersive experience! Viewers will articulate the purpose of an aircraft carrier and identify at least three crew member jobs held during Intrepid's time of service. They will be taught the many ways in which life aboard Intrepid differed from life on land, and some of the adjustments sailors made to improve life aboard.

On this day in 1943 the USS Intrepid was christened. For Intrepid’s christening, the ship’s sponsor, Mrs. Helen Hoover smashed a bottle of champagne across the ship’s bow to bestow good luck on the ship and crew. Christening a ship is a maritime tradition that still occurs today.
