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.
