Ahoy! Welcome to the Captain’s Bridge
Posted: 12/18/2012 10:12:50 AM

Tour Guide Talks, Intrepid Museum’s bite sized video tour series, continues with Senior Tour Guide, Michael Miscione and a tour of the former USS Intrepid’s Captain’s Bridge.

Located within Intrepid’s Island, the Captain’s Bridge houses the helm, or in landlubber terms, the steering wheel.  From here, the Captain would command and the helmsmen would steer the ship.

With other gizmos and gadgets a-plenty, this video will help demystify “what’s what” on the Bridge:

If this two minute virtual talk leaves you wanting more, take a look at Intrepid’s wide variety of Guided Tour offerings, including a sort of “choose your own adventure” VIP Tour. In anticipation of our December 21st reopening, General Admission and Guided Tour tickets are now available  for online purchase for visits from December 21st onwards. And more Talks featuring the Museum’s expert Tour Guides are promised to be released throughout the rest of 2012.To view more videos click here
