Special Event Venue: Hangar Bay 3

Special Event Venue: Hangar Bay 3


[soft electronic music] – Welcome. We’re here on
the aft end of the ship in Hangar 3, the largest indoor space
in the museum. By day,
it’s the Exploreum, filled with
interactive exhibits that educate and inspire visitors of all ages. By night, these displays
move on casters, allowing us
to reposition them anywhere around the room for a customized layout. They can even be
completely cleared out, opening up 11,000
square feet of space without any obstructions. Here we have
floor-to-ceiling drapes that can be used
to separate Hangar 3 from the rest
of the museum. The drapes also line both lengths of the room, creating a soft
and sophisticated environment, a blank slate for
any type of event production or decor. Now let’s head up
to the Discovery Deck loft so you can get
a bird’s-eye view of what can be created
in this expansive space. Hangar 3 is one of only
a few rooms in New York City that can accommodate
over 900 guests for a seated dinner
or gala. And, of course,
it’s also a great option for smaller dinners with plenty of room
for a dance floor. For standing receptions
or seated programs, we can accommodate
up to 1,000 guests with ample space
for big stages, perfect for
award ceremonies and keynote presentations, as well as
live entertainment like celebrity DJs and headline musical acts. The impressive length
of Hangar 3 also makes it a natural fit
for fashion shows, seating up to 800 attendees around an elevated
or ground-level runway. Multiple rigging points
in the ceiling support a variety
of decor elements, such as banners,
canopies, lanterns, chandeliers, and more. Adjacent to Hangar 3 is our indoor/outdoor Starboard
Aircraft Elevator Terrace. This terrace features
teakwood floors and is covered
by a three-season tent, perfect for your next
daytime conference, luncheon,
or evening reception. Want to kick your event
into even higher gear? You can add any of
our exciting simulator rides to your package. As you can see,
Hangar 3 is the perfect venue for just about any type
of event experience, on its own or in a combination
with other spaces here at
the Intrepid Museum. Need to make a big splash with your next event? Then give the special events team a call at: Check us out online at:
