Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum

Hangar Deck Interpretive and Interactive Exhibits

At the time of its completion, the exhibits for this project were some of the most complex that DDI had ever worked on. The main “fixture” in this 43,000 sq. ft. gallery is a “floating” display case. This case was fabricated out of metal, plywood, and glass, and stretches 280 feet through three different sections of the Hangar deck. It weighs approximately 40 tons, and had to be meticulously engineered and fabricated so that it could be seamlessly suspended from the ceiling with no attachment to, or support from, the floor.

In addition to this main display case there are a variety of other exhibit components including graphic panels, interactive A/V and multi-media stations, as well as reproductions of the Mercury and Gemini Space capsules and the “Bridge” on the flight deck.
