The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Commissioning of the World War II-era Essex class aircraft carrier with a special former crew member Homecoming Weekend from Friday, August 16 – Sunday, August 18 at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan.

The reunion weekend is open to the public, and will feature a variety of programs and events in honor of the U.S.S. Intrepid’s anniversary. Highlights of the weekend’s events will include:

Friday, August 16th – Sunday, August 18th:  

• Pop-Up Exhibit: Working Below Decks

10:00am – 6:00pm in 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. In this Pop-Up Exhibit, the Intrepid Museum will highlight a few of these occupations through original ship equipment that has never before been on public display. Among the equipment to be showcased is a vintage laundry press, illustrating the demanding task of keeping the crew looking clean and pressed to Navy standards. These authentic pieces of equipment reveal the behind-the-scenes occupations that were essential to the operation of Intrepid.

Friday, August 16th:

• Commissioning Ceremony

11:00am – 12:00pm on the Flight Deck

The Commissioning Ceremony, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the USS Intrepid, will include several speakers, a wreath laying and cake cutting, a tradition the Intrepid crew enjoyed during each major anniversary. More than 200 former crew members will return back to the ship for the special ceremony, including some who have not been aboard since the completion of their service.  

Saturday, August 17th:  

• Meet a Former Crew Member

11:00 am – 3:00 in Hangar 2

• Curator Talk: Intrepid's Laundry, Pop-Up Exhibit

3:30pm in Hangar 1

Washing, drying and pressing clothing for 3,000 men took organization and stamina. Join the Museum’s Curator of History to learn about the men who worked in Intrepid's laundry room. Visitors are invited to meet at the laundry press on display in Hangar 1 for the talk.

Sunday, August 18th:  

• Access Family Program for Children with Developmental or Learning Disabilities, aged 5-17

11:30am in Hangar 1

Printed material was essential for communication on board Intrepid. Join the Museum’s Curator of History for an introduction to Intrepid's print shop and the men who printed memos, newsletters and top-secret documents. Visitors are invited to meet at the printing press on display in Hangar 1 for the talk.

• Curator Talk, Intrepid's Cobbler Shop, Pop-Up Exhibit

3:30pm in Hangar 1
