ALL SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS LISTED BELOW ARE INCLUDED WITH YOUR MUSEUM DAY PASS!
DRONES: IS THE SKY THE LIMIT?
The Museum’s new exhibition reveals the origins of drone technology, traces its development and highlights current applications. See a variety of drones, historical artifacts, rare videos and immersive installations. Fly a virtual drone through a challenging landscape, and experience technology rarely available to the general public. The Museum will also offer programs that examine this evolving technology and its ethical implications.
ON THE LINE: INTREPID AND THE VIETNAM WAR
Set within the spaces where men lived and served, this exhibition focuses on the experiences of Intrepid and its crew “on the line”—the periods when the ship was active in the Gulf of Tonkin, launching aircraft for missions over mainland Vietnam.
PORTS OF CALL
Intrepid’s missions took the crew to cities around the globe. At each port of call, crew members visited local attractions, historic sites, shops, restaurants and bars. This exhibition explores the significance of these journeys to the young sailors who formed Intrepid’s crew.
DON’T BE A DILBERT: U.S. NAVY SAFETY POSTERS
See the Museum’s collection of U.S. Navy safety posters, illustrated by the noted cartoonist Robert Osborn. These World War II posters feature two blundering cartoon characters—Dilbert the pilot and Spoiler the mechanic—whose slip-ups endangered lives and equipment.
