Education Demonstrations

Poof! Life in a Vacuum
Weekdays at 3:30pm, Weekends at 11:30am and 3:30pm in the Space Shuttle Pavilion
Learn just how important the Earth's atmosphere is and why astronauts need to wear those big, heavy space suits. Using a bell jar and vacuum pump, Intrepid Educators will mimic the vacuum of space. Participants will first predict, then discover what happens to various objects when they are exposed to a vacuum and then make the extension to how the human body would react to the vacuum of space. (Don't worry, nothing gross!)

Blast Off! Launching the Space Shuttles
Every Day at 1:30pm in the Space Shuttle Pavilion
Traveling at 17,500 miles per hour in a space shuttle takes some science, engineering and a whole lot of rocket fuel. In this interactive demonstration, Museum educators launch air-powered rockets and use Newton’s laws of motion to explore the history and future of rocket propulsion.

Helicopters: How Do Those Things Fly?
Weekdays at 2:00pm on the Hangar Deck
Helicopters are amazing flying machines, but how do they stay in the air? Using computer-generated models and hands-on demonstrations, Museum educators demystify how helicopters can fly in any direction.

On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War

On the Line: Intrepid & the Vietnam War   On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War
Exhibition Now Open!

The Intrepid Museum’s new exhibition On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War explores the events and impact of the Vietnam War through the lens of Intrepid’s history. Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the conclusion of the war, the exhibition offers a site-specific immersion into an important chapter of American history. The legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid served three tours of duty in Vietnam between 1966 and 1969. Set within the very spaces where men lived and served, the 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. The exhibition includes artifacts, photographs and film clips from the Museum’s collection, many of which will be on display for the first time.

Bank of America is generously providing free Museum admission to U.S. active military, retired military and veterans. Proper ID is requested, and tickets may only be obtained at the Museum Box Office.
