Experience Intrepid Anywhere
Space and Science Festival, September 20-23, #spacescifest

Intrepid has served our nation for more than 75 years, playing crucial roles in World War II, the Cold War, Vietnam War and the Space Race. Now as the centerpiece of a world class museum – the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum – it continues to serve with a new mission: 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.

While we are temporarily closed and in these difficult times it remains as important as ever to stay connected and continue to fulfill our mission. Below are some of the ways you can stay engaged with us digitally through a variety of compelling content from oral histories and virtual tours to resources that serve educators, parents and students. 

Access to all of our online programs and digital content is free.  Now more than ever we could use your help during this challenging time. Your support is critical to our present and future.
