Full description
Visitors to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum can experience a legendary aircraft carrier, the first space shuttle, the world’s fastest jets, and a Cold War-era submarine. Discover a museum that employs history and technology to inspire and advance innovation by developing the next generation of leaders in science, technology, engineering, and math. The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is dedicated to the exhibition and interpretation of history, science, and service from its home on board the aircraft carrier Intrepid, a National Historic Landmark. The former aircraft carrier USS Intrepid was launched in 1943 and fought in World War II, surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. The ship later served in the Cold War and the Vietnam War. It was decommissioned in 1974, and today is berthed on the Hudson River. You get the chance to visit 4 decks of this great ship: • Hangar Deck: A great place to start your visit and our main indoor exhibit space, the hangar deck takes you through both the hardware and humanity of Intrepid • Flight Deck: Get an up-close look at more than two dozen authentically restored aircraft, look inside the Restoration Tent, and take a walk through history on Intrepid's island and bridges. - Gallery Deck: Located between the flight deck and hangar deck, the gallery deck features the combat information center (CIC), squadron ready room, and marine berthing • Third Deck: Learn about shipboard life in Intrepid's restored galley, enlisted mess, and crew berthing The Space Shuttle Pavilion showcases Enterprise, the prototype NASA orbiter that paved the way for the space shuttle program. Dynamic exhibit zones feature original artifacts, photographs, audio, and films that immerse visitors in the science and history of Enterprise and the space shuttle era.

    The USS Intrepid is a full day's adventure, so wear your most comfortable clothes and shoes. These is too much information to absorb in one visit, so take photos of the explanations of the exhibits that intrigue you. You can read them later. Visiting the USS Intrepid is a walk through much of US history.

    The woman at the entrance outside was wonderfully helpful. We arrived on day of ticket just a few minutes after the last entry, and she told us we could come back the next day and get date on ticket changed. We showed up when the museum opened the next day and she remembered us and escorted us inside to get out tickets changed.

    Pretty awesome. Space Shuttle, Carrier and a Nuclear Missile Submarine in one place?! Being able to walk through Growler was something else. You'll realize the Concorde is a separate ticket after you leave the ticketing area - get it up front if you want to do it. Getyourguide was not needed, tries to get you to download an app you don't need. Tons of ads, lots of confusion. Would be 5 stars, but $66 for two people and no extras - and Smithsonian Air and Space Museum is free.
