WOW! Located on the west side’s Pier 86, this piping-hot NYC museum includes the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle that paved the way for America’s successful Space Shuttle Program. Also on display are 27 authentically restored aircraft, including the Lockheed A-12 Blackbird, the world’s fasted military jet and spy plane, and the British Airways Concorde, the fasted commercial aircraft ever to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Rounding out the Museum are the submarine Growler, the only American diesel-power strategic missile submarine open to the public, an 18,000 square foot education center, Pier 86, a publicly accessible pier that is part of the Hudson River Park Trust, and the Exploreum, a fully interactive exhibit space in the Museum's hangar deck designed for families and kids of all ages.
In addition to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s massive and permanent mainstays, it also regularly features inspiring temporary exhibitions such as On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War (open through Fall 2016) as well as public programs such as “Kid's Week” (Feb), "Fleet Week" (May) and “Space & Science Festival” (July).
Guided tours are available at the Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum, as are audio tours in seven languages. Don’t leave without checking out one of Intrepid’s awesome simulators…just adding another dimension of fun to your museum experience!
