Space Shuttle Pavilion
Our Space Shuttle Pavilion is home to Enterprise, NASA’s prototype orbiter that paved the way for the space shuttle program, with 17 dynamic exhibit zones featuring original artifacts, photographs, audio and films that immerse visitors in this historic era.
Mike Massimino, a former NASA astronaut, is now the Senior Adviser for space programs for the Intrepid Museum and a professor at Columbia University. Mike is a veteran of two space flights, the fourth and fifth Hubble Space Telescope servicing missions in 2002 and 2009.
Fun fact: Mike is the first astronaut to tweet from space!
