Thirty Years of Collecting: Treasures from Intrepid’s Collections and Thirty Years of Excellence: An Intrepid Museum Celebration -- new exhibitions that celebrate the 30th anniversary of Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan -- will open to the public on Friday, July 27.

Thirty Years of Collecting: Treasures from Intrepid’s Collections will showcase objects from the Intrepid Museum’s collections related to the historic aircraft carrier Intrepid, Growler submarine, Concorde and the space shuttle Enterprise. The exhibit will include nearly 30 objects – many of which will be displayed publicly for the first time – such as original helmets, uniforms, letters, photographs, books, and other items that will display the “humanity behind the hardware” of the vessels at the Museum.

Thirty Years of Excellence: An Intrepid Museum Celebration will trace Intrepid’s historic journey from being transformed from an aircraft carrier into one of New York City’s most iconic cultural institutions.  A collection of nearly 40 items including artifacts, video footage, photographs and other archival materials highlight the major milestones of the Museum and its affiliated nonprofit organizations, including the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Both exhibitions will be open to the public through December 2, 2012.

The exhibits are free with the price of admission to the museum.  For more information, visit www.intrepidmuseum.org.
