The Exploreum is the 13,000 square foot, fully interactive exhibition space on the Museum’s Hangar Deck. These interactive exhibits are designed especially for families and groups to discover together WATER, AIR, SPACE, and LIFE AT SEA

Exploreum is one of the single most visited areas of the ship, and the spot where visitors tend to spend the most time – climbing in an actual Bell 47 helicopter, playing “space pinball” to learn about how orbits and gravitational pull work, and feel the sensation of being on water when they climb in to an actual lifeboat “on water.”


Exploreum has proven to be a big hit with kids and families, as they learn and laugh together.
No longer do parents have to merely sit and wait for their kids to be done playing – here, in Exploreum, they play together!  All of the exhibits in the Exploreum are related to Intrepid’s history or its educational focus.
