THE INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM RECEIVES $150,000 GRANT FROM THE INSTITUTE OF MUSEUM AND LIBRARY SERVICES TO CREATE NEW EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES SURROUNDING THE COLD WAR-ERA SUBMARINE GROWLER

New York, NY (
October 7, 2016)— The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum today announced they have been awarded a grant of $150,000 from The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to launch the two-year project Cold War: Stories from the Deep, which will expand the Museum’s oral history project and create dynamic interpretation and educational content around the history of the submarine Growler.
 
The Intrepid Museum is home to the Cold War–era submarine Growler, the only surviving example of an early U.S. Navy guided missile submarine and the only American missile submarine open to the public. The Museum will use the funds to conduct video-based oral history interviews with former crew members, and will incorporate them into an interactive exhibition for use in the permanent Growler exhibition, as well as public and educational programs and web-based and digital platforms.

“We are thrilled to receive this grant from the IMLS in support of the Cold War: Stories from the Deep project,” stated Susan Marenoff-Zausner, president of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. “The funding will allow us to bring an important piece of American history to life and enrich the visitor experience of one of the most treasured artifacts of the Museum.”

The project also represents a stand-alone component of a larger initiative. In 2018 the Museum will unveil a new, permanent, accessible exhibition to address the visitor appetite for more information about this submarine, the experiences of its crew, the era it represents, and to mark Growler’s 60th commissioning anniversary.
