Get swept up in the excitement of Fleet Week! Here are five things you won’t want to miss at the Museum.



Watch a movie on the flight deck: Friday, May 25

Watch Top Gun from the flight deck of an actual aircraft carrier! Sit next to the Museum’s Tomcat—the same type of fighter plane flown by Maverick, Goose and Iceman—and enjoy the show. Learn more


 


Dance like no one’s watching on the flight deck: Saturday, May 26

Immerse yourself in the music, dancing and style of the World War II era. Grab your dancing shoes and join us on Intrepid’s flight deck for a night of swing dancing and an epic battle of New York’s best big bands. Get tickets.




See live performances on the pier, and sing along to Broadway tunes: Saturday, May 26–Monday, May 28


Broadway singers, Latin jazz, tap dancers, 80s hits—there’s something for everyone in our lineup of outdoor performances over the weekend. See the schedule




See a live (but staged!) search-and-rescue demo:
Monday, May 28


See how the Coast Guard rescues a person in distress (in this case, a mannequin floating in the Hudson) from a helicopter hovering overhead. Free and open to the public




Talk with men who served aboard the ship: Saturday, May 26–Monday, May 28


Hear stories about life on the ship—from the tense moments of service to pranks during shore leave—straight from men who served during the Cold War and Vietnam War. Former crew members will be stationed on the pier and around the ship all weekend.
