Working Below Decks

Working Below Decks   Working Below Decks

Location: Hangar 1

Operating the aircraft carrier Intrepid required the skills of 3,000 men, many of whom worked below decks—far from the excitement of the flight deck. The Intrepid Museum will highlight a few of these occupations through original ship's equipment that has never been on public display before. Among the equipment to be showcased is a vintage laundry press, illustrating the demanding task of keeping the crew looking clean and pressed to U.S. Navy standards. These authentic pieces of equipment reveal the behind-the-scenes occupations that were essential to the operation of Intrepid.

The World of Camoufalge   Masters of Disguise: The World of Camouflage

Now through August 24, 2014
Location: Michael Stern Gallery on the hangar deck

Why is a squirrel gray? Why do some bugs look like sticks? The answer to these questions is camouflage. For many animals, being able to hide in plain sight or look like something entirely different is a necessity of survival. This exhibit explores the art and science of camouflage in the natural world as well as its cultural adaptations. Using digital imagery, artifacts, and interactive elements, visitors will explore color, shade and shapes, and learn how they can fool the eye. Exhibition is free with Museum admission.
