INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM
DEBUTS FREE TOUR GUIDE TALK
“BUILDING THE FIGHTING I”

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum introduces the free Tour Guide Talk “Building the Fighting I” that will run weekends from September 14th – October 27th, from 11:00 AM – 11:15 AM & 2:00 PM – 2:15 PM aboard the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue), Manhattan.

First ordered in the aftermath of the fall of France, with the keel laid down just six days before the Pearl Harbor attack, Intrepid’s development and construction was a race against time. In honor of the 70th Anniversary of Intrepid’s Commissioning, this Tour Guide Talk will lead visitors through the dire circumstances and heroic sacrifices that allowed the Intrepid, nicknamed the “Fighting I,”  to be completed in time to make a difference.

This Tour Guide Talk is open to the public and free with the price of admission to the museum.

 

DATE:            Saturdays & Sundays from September 14 through October 27

TIME:             11:00 AM – 11:15 AM & 2:00 PM – 2:15 PM

PLACE:          Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
                                                Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue)
                                                Manhattan
