New Virtual Tour and Online Collection announced by the Intrepid Museum!

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum To Launch

Virtual Tour And Online Collection Including Over 100 Specially Selected Artifacts On Google Arts & Culture

Online Features Include Museum’s First-Ever Digital Exhibition and 360-Degree Google Street View Tour

New York, NY (October 24, 2017) – The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum today launched a virtual tour of the Museum, as well as over 100 select artifacts and photos online in a new digital collection on Google Arts & Culture. The content, specially curated from the Museum’s collection of more than 16,500 objects, will provide global access to its exhibits, artifacts and archives. The collection can be viewed here… www.google.com/culturalinstitute/beta/partner/intrepid-sea-air-and-space-museum.
Using Google’s Street View feature, users can now virtually explore Intrepid’s flight deck, hangar deck, flag bridge, navigation bridge and combat information center, the submarine Growler, the British Airways Concorde and the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home of the space shuttle Enterprise.
In addition, an online collection of over 100 objects, artifacts and photographs highlights items that reflect the scope of the Museum’s full collection including a World War II diary, a Vietnam War survival kit and souvenirs from the Concorde’s era of service.
Included in the new online content is the Intrepid Museum’s first-ever digital exhibition, On Liberty, At War: Intrepid’s Ports of Call During the Vietnam War.  It is a specially curated companion to the Ports of Call exhibition, currently on display in the Museum’s hangar deck through February 2019.
Intrepid’s missions took the ship and crew to cities around the globe. At each port of call, 3,000 crew members fanned out to explore local tourist attractions, historic sites, souvenir shops, restaurants and bars. After each deployment, sailors regaled their families with stories of faraway places. Decades later, these same men and their families entrusted their artifacts to the Intrepid Museum.  On Liberty, At War: Intrepid’s Ports of Call During the Vietnam War focuses on the ship’s port visits between 1966 and 1969, and explores the significance of these journeys to the young sailors who formed Intrepid’s crew.
“We are proud to partner with Google Arts & Culture to launch this digital collection,” stated Susan Marenoff-Zausner, president of the Intrepid Museum. “With just a few clicks, users can come face to face with NASA’s original orbiter or explore a World War II–era aircraft carrier in 360 degrees. We are thrilled to share this exclusive content, and we hope this look into the history of service and innovation helps to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, inventors and explorers.”
