The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Opens New Temporary Exhibition,

Personal Space

Exhibition opens the first day of Intrepid Museum’s Annual Space & Science Festival

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will open a new temporary exhibition during this year’s annual Space & Science Festival about the personal belongings astronauts bring with them on missions. Personal Space will open on Thursday, September 20 in the Museum’s Space Shuttle Pavilion alongside the space shuttle Enterprise.

Like anyone leaving home for a long trip, astronauts bring along personal possessions to remind them of family, friends and their life back on Earth. This collection of personal objects offers a glimpse into the makings and motivations of eleven different space explorers. From a childhood toy to a grandfather’s pocket watch, these reminders of home are as unique as the astronauts themselves.

Astronauts featured in the exhibition include Mike Massimino, who flew to space on two missions to repair the Hubble Space Telescope; Charles F. Bolden Jr., who piloted space shuttles on four missions and is the former administrator of NASA appointed by President Barack Obama; Dr. Ellen Baker, who completed three spaceflights and spent 28 days in space; and Scott D. Altman, who commanded two missions and spent more than 40 days in space.

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue), Manhattan
