A $24.00 value, FREE with your New York Explorer Pass!

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

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.

A visit to the Intrepid Museum is like traveling back to the conflict-ridden 20th century. This exhibition features a Harrier jet, capable of vertical takeoffs and landings, a Blackbird spy plane, an F-14 Tomcat, a Phantom, and a MiG 21. It’s worth the trip just to see the infamous Concorde jet, a commercial airliner famous for its incredibly short trips from both London and Paris to New York. The Concorde first saw flight in 1976, with its transatlantic service coming to a dramatic end in 2003 following a fatal Air France crash.

The USS Growler, which sits across the pier from Intrepid Museum, is the only American strategic missile submarine made open to the public. Visitors can go below deck to check out the once top-secret missile command center, torpedo rooms, attack center, and even the crew’s mess hall!

In addition to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s massive and permanent mainstays, it also features informational exhibits such as Inspiration and Industry: American Women on the Home Front, and various lectures and short-term themed events such as Girls in Science and Engineering Day.

Be sure to check out the Intrepid Museum’s Exploreum, a 13,000 foot interactive exhibition space on the deck of the Intrepid. Designed for children of all ages, the Exploreum allows visitors to delve into four zones: water, air, space, and life at sea.

Guided tours are available at the Intrepid Museum, as well as audio tours in seven languages. And don’t leave without checking out one of Intrepid’s awesome simulators!

Save on admission to the Intrepid Museum, plus New York City's top museums, sights, and tours all for one low price with the New York Explorer Pass!

Ticket price misrepresented
By jHat Verified Reviewer from Texas on
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum:

First of all, the actual ticket price is $22/adult, $17/child 7-17 and $10/child 3-6 on the Intrepid website so your savings isn't as much as advertised. You can purchase your tickets on the Intrepid website and skip the lines so unless you are combining this with other attractions, it's not a savings...in fact, you pay more!! The attraction itself is great...especially for boys. My 9 and 6 year old LOVED it. Once inside, there are simulators that cost extra! $9 per rider or $24 for all 3 simulators. Great attraction...not a great price unless combined!

Exhibits were Interesting. We had a pretty good time. Although it poured rain the entire time we were there. A lot the exhibits require going outside to get to them or are outside,including the ticket line so make sure you bring an umbrella or poncho.

Planes, shuttles & subamarines
By Neenie Verified Reviewer from Melbourne Australia on
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum:

Ok, don't want to sound sexist but this is probably one for the boys although I did enjoy the aeroplane exhibit. Ship & sub; if you've seen inside these things before then I wouldn't bother seeing them again. Shuttle & Concorde were closed which was very very very disappointing...check that these are open to view before buying ticket if you really want to see them.
