We are thrilled to announce the opening of Intrepid’s Space Shuttle Pavilion. Within the Pavilion, space shuttle Enterprise sits just 10 feet off the ground, allowing visitors to walk directly underneath this historic artifact, while an elevated viewing platform allows guests to gain even greater perspective. The exhibit has been engineered to express the shuttle program’s stories of human triumph and technological feats. Enterprise was NASA’s very first space shuttle and the inspiration and prototype for the shuttles that followed. Intrepid is proud to be one of the few places in the world to provide the opportunity for visitors to get an up close view of a space shuttle.

Also showcased in the pavilion is our Project Enterprise Wall where you can learn about the future permanent home of Enterprise. This interactive wall showcases those who have Sponsored a Star and supported our future plans for Enterprise, providing the opportunity for Intrepid Museum to build a thriving center for science, technology, engineering and math education programs designed to inspire future scientists, engineers and researchers.
