Housed at the Intrepid Museum, the space shuttle Enterprise is the largest space artifact in the American Northeast. And now we're offering a rare look inside this incredible piece of space history
Assembled 45 years ago, the space shuttle Enterprise was the prototype for the five orbiters that followed. Previous cramped capsules, like the one that took astronauts to the moon just a few years earlier, were akin to three humans living in a VW bus for 12 days. But the Enterprise was a model for a new space shuttle system, one which provided accommodation for seven astronauts and a massive cargo compartment. And now you can step inside!
During this special live one-hour digital tour experience, the Intrepid Museum’s Curator of Aviation, Eric Boehm, will take you inside the actual space shuttle! The interior of the Enterprise is not open to the public, and few people outside of NASA have had the opportunity to examine or even see inside this marvel of engineering. Don't miss this incredible and rare opportunity!
