Walk the deck of an aircraft carrier, the corridors of a World War II submarine, the center aisle of a Concorde, and see spacecraft all in one place. The USS Intrepid, once an active aircraft carrier, has been transformed into a floating museum docked at New York City.
Walk all over the aircraft carrier, see how sailors live, and interact with many of the exhibits. The fascinating displays include dozens of exotic military fighter aircraft that line the flight deck, an SR71 Blackbird, and Mercury spacecraft replicas. The new Space Shuttle Pavilion displays a space shuttle orbiter, Enterprise!
The decommissioned British Airways Concorde and a WW II submarine (the USS Growler) are crowd favorites. There may be long lines to see these two, but most will agree that it's worth the wait.
The interactive exhibits, vast assortment of sea, air, and spacecraft, and a unique insight into the lives of deployed sailors is quite intriguing for any age, although many parts are specifically geared toward kids.
If you like watching the history channel, have any interest in aircraft (any at all), or would enjoy learning how people live at sea for six months, you will probably enjoy the Intrepid Museum.
Admission prices vary depending on whether you want to see the Intrepid only, Intrepid + Space Shuttle Pavilion, or an All Access Pass to experience everything the Intrepid has to offer.
For detailed pricing, see Ticket Information on the Intrepid website.
