Billed as “The Most Inspiring Adventure in America,” the Intrepid Museum is an informational, must-see tourist site. The USS Intrepid is a war hero in its own rite, having served in World War II, The Vietnam War, the Cold War’s anti-submarine patrols, and on NASA recovery missions. After the September 11th tragedy, the aircraft served as a temporary headquarters for the FBI’s New York Field Office.

Note: Entrance is for general admission only. It does not include admission to the Space Shuttle Pavilion. You may upgrade to the Space Shuttle Pavilion directly at the Museum if you wish.

The new Intrepid Museum is an interactive complex that should not be missed, no matter what your age or affinity for military vessels. Located at the new Pier 86 park facility, this attraction boasts 30 restored aircraft, a submarine, and a British Airways Concorde jet!

Explore four levels of the storied aircraft carrier and learn what it was like to be onboard in wartime. Artifacts and exhibits bring the experience to life. Educational? Yes. Fun? Absolutely.
