Drones: Is the Sky the Limit?


Drones: Is the Sky the Limit?


This large-scale exhibition will showcase historical artifacts, model airplanes, rare videos and immersive installations exploring the earliest attempts to employ unmanned flying machines to the advanced systems of the 21st century and beyond. Visitors will be able to fly actual drones and watch the dizzying first-person viewpoint of a drone racing; get up close and personal with Volantis, the world’s first “flying dress,” designed by global superstar Lady Gaga, in collaboration with TechHaus, the technology development division of her Haus of Gaga, and Studio XO, on public display for the first time ever; see a prototype of an Amazon cargo vehicle designed for home delivery of online shopping orders; explore the use of drones in police and fire departments; see how drone technology creates new perspectives for photographers, artists, filmmakers and stage productions; explore the implications of pilotless aircraft on industries including infrastructure, agriculture and meteorology; learn about its contributions to conservation and humanitarian efforts; and consider what the future holds – from the possibility of personal flying cars to space exploration.

Free with Museum Admission.

Exhibition Now Open!

Explore the events and impact of the Vietnam War through the lens of the ship’s history. Set within the 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 are on display for the first time.

Bank of America has generously provided free admission to U.S. active military, retired military and veterans. Proper ID is requested, and tickets may be obtained at the Museum box office.
