Restored spaces on the third deck reveal daily life for the ship’s enlisted sailors.
Third Deck and Gallery Deck
  Mess Deck

The mess deck is where Intrepid's enlisted crew members ate their meals. The mess, or dining area, has been restored to its original appearance after a massive remodeling in 1969. The vibrant decor—complete with custom paint colors, colorful textiles and Western-themed props—is unique to Intrepid.
  Restored Berthing Areas

Intrepid was home to 3,000 enlisted sailors, officers and Marines. Visit restored berthing areas that show the tight sleeping quarters that the majority of the ship's crew endured.
