The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum officially reopened to the public Friday for the first time since Sandy.
Manhattan elementary school students from PS 6 were among the first to visit the facility.
It has been closed to repair major damage to its electrical systems which were flooded in the storm.
The pavilion housing the shuttle Enterprise remains closed while preparations are made to install a new structure to cover the shuttle and rebuild the exhibit's interior.
The shuttle is still fully visible from the flight deck and the pier.
The Welcome Center also remains closed while being rebuilt.
