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.

Welcoming more than a million visitors a year, the museum 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.

Your flexible admission ticket allows you to adjust the day of your visit to the Museum to best fit in with your changing plans. The ticket allows you to visit on whatever date you like, within a month of your scheduled ticket date.

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 newly reopened 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.

Growler first opened at the Intrepid Museum in 1989 and is the only American strategic missile submarine open to the public. Museum visitors are offered a first-hand look at life aboard a submarine and a close-up inspection of the once top-secret missile command center.

The fastest Atlantic crossing by any Concorde occurred on 7 February 1996 and took only 2 hours, 52 minutes, and 59 seconds. This record-breaking plane, the Concorde Alpha Delta G-BOAD, is yours to explore at the Intrepid Museum complex on Pier 86 (additional entry fee).

Upgrade your experience by choosing an option that includes a simulator experience like the Transporter FX or the 4D Experience Stories of Intrepid.
