Why does the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum matter? For some, the Museum matters because it is a place where the stories of those who served are honored, preserved and shared. For others, the Museum matters because it is a place where education can open doors to new possibilities. And to others still, the Museum matters because it is a place where the next Edwin Hubble or Sally Ride will be inspired to follow their dreams.

This year’s Honor.Educate.Inspire campaign shares the personal stories of three individuals and why the Intrepid Museum matters to them. In the videos below, hear from Travis Patton, whose father flew from Intrepid; hear from Julia Peloso-Barnes, whose passion for STEM education ignited a commitment to support the Museum’s education and outreach programs; and hear from former astronaut Mike Massimino as he talks about the importance of museum-based learning.
