Space Shuttle Enterprise

In 1977, NASA conducted a series of tests on a new type of craft: the Space Shuttle. Now that prototype resides on the deck of the Intrepid in a specially designed pavilion. Visitors can walk close to and under the 180-foot-long, six-story Shuttle, the wingspan of which is more than 70 feet. Meanwhile, multimedia displays, images and artifacts will tell the story of space exploration and the Enterprise’s role in it.

Location: Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, Pier 86, Twelfth Ave, at 46th Street, NYC

Opening Hours: Daily 10am–5pm
