The Museum’s new digital collection on Google Arts & Culture provides global access to many of its historical spaces, artifacts and archives.

Google Arts & Culture offers three ways to explore the Museum and its collection:

  • Using Google’s Street View feature, you can now virtually explore the aircraft carrier Intrepid, the submarine Growler, the British Airways Concorde and the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home of the space shuttle Enterprise.
  • View more than 100 artifacts and photographs that offer a glimpse into the history and technology preserved at the Museum, including a World War II diary, a Vietnam War survival kit and souvenirs from the Concorde’s era of service.
  • See the Museum’s first digital exhibition On Liberty, At War: Intrepid’s Ports of Call during the Vietnam War. It focuses on the ship’s port visits between 1966 and 1969 and the significance of these journeys to the young sailors who formed Intrepid’s crew. (This digital exhibition is a companion to the exhibition Ports of Call, currently on display at the Museum.)
A man and woman read an exhibit panel on Intrepid's flight deck while their child points at the propeller of an aircraft.
