Planning of long-term, multimedia exhibition elements about how the diverse crew of the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid lived and worked together and participated in world events from 1943 to 1969.

"City at Sea: An Intrepid Interpretive Guide" is a long-term exhibition project that will bring to life, for museum visitors, the restored historic spaces aboard the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum's historic aircraft carrier, the former USS Intrepid. "City at Sea" will explore the history of the Intrepid through the eyes of the ship's crew, presenting a balanced interpretation that unfolds within the historic interiors where sailors lived and worked. The interpretation of the Intrepid's restored spaces will focus on four significant moments that illustrate the ship's contributions to American and world history throughout her long career in the Navy (1943-74). A self-guided tour through the ship, "City at Sea" will illustrate how the Intrepid's crew members experienced and participated in significant moments in twentieth-century history.
