In August 2018, the Intrepid Museum celebrates the 75th commissioning anniversary of the aircraft carrier Intrepid. To mark the occasion, a temporary exhibition entitled Intrepid A-Z will explore the experience of life on Intrepid through the Museum's rich collections of artifacts, archives and media never before seen by the public. Each artifact in the Intrepid alphabet will be accompanied by commentary from former crew members, former Navy veterans and members of the Museum's curatorial staff. The exhibition will be staged in the Museum's Hangar 1 and be on display through January 2019.

"C" is for christening, the ceremony during which a ship is officially named. The original ribbons from Intrepid's christening champagne mark this important milestone.


"Q" is for Quonset Point, Intrepid's last home port. The ship's quartermasters saved the chart showing Intrepid's last plot, which shows the route by which Intrepid returned to its home port for the last time before being decommissioned.

And what will be the other 24 letters? Learn more
