Drones: Is the Sky the Limit? the new exhibit opens on May 10 at the Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum.

The exhibit explores pilotless aircraft and the history of drone technology, from its modern-day origins in World War I and its military development to its current applications in solving complex humanitarian and commercial challenges.

Visitors will be able to fly actual drones and watch the first-person viewpoint of a drone racing, and get up-close and personal with Volantis, the world’s first “flying dress,” designed by global superstar Lady Gaga in collaboration with TechHaus. Also on display is a prototype of an Amazon cargo vehicle designed for home delivery of online shopping orders.

Explore the use of drones in police and fire departments, and see how technology creates new perspectives for photographers, artists, filmmakers and stage productions. Plus, learn about its contributions to conservation and humanitarian efforts, and consider what the future holds — from the possibility of personal flying cars to space exploration.

Drones: Is the Sky the Limit? beginning May 10 on weekdays, 10 am to 5 pm; Saturdays and Sundays, 10 am to 6 pm. General admission $33 adults, $31 seniors, $24 children 5 to 12 years old, and free for children under 5. Retired and active-duty military members free. New York City residents, (must show valid ID) $19 adult and seniors, $17 for children ages 5 to 12, and free for children 4 and younger.

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum (Pier 86 at 46th Street and 12th Avenue, www.intrepidmuseum.org).
