The Intrepid Museum will debut a new temporary exhibition, Objects in Conversation, Saturday, August 16, which is also the 71st commissioning anniversary of Intrepid.

During its U.S. Navy service, Intrepid was home to more than 3,000 men at a time. Today, the Intrepid Museum houses a collection of more than 9,000 historic objects, archives, photographs and film. Like each sailor, every artifact has a unique story. And each object becomes more valuable and meaningful as part of our collections as a whole, just as the ship’s crew drew its collective strength from the contributions of each individual.

Objects in Conversation shares stories from the Museum’s collections that no single object could tell on its own. This temporary exhibition will be on display from August 16, 2014 to June 8, 2015.
