NYC & Company, the official marketing, tourism and partnership organization for the city of New York, has named the newly restored Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum the “Culture Spot” for May.
The museum, one of America’s leading historic, cultural and educational institutions, is located aboard the USS Intrepid, a 66-year-old aircraft carrier. The museum will celebrate its Culture Spot designation by offering visitors two-for-one admission throughout the month of May.
The USS Intrepid and her crew have a distinguished history of service, including tours of duty in both World War II and Vietnam. She also served as a NASA prime recovery vessel before being retired in 1974. In 1982 the USS Intrepid began a new career as the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
Following a two-year leave for restoration and renovation, the Intrepid Museum complex reopened in November 2008 and now boasts new and interactive exhibits, newly opened areas of the ship and a completely restored aircraft collection alongside the former USS Growler submarine and British Airways Concorde. Her home at Pier 86, located on the Hudson River at Twelfth Avenue and West 46th Street, also has been renovated.
