At the Intrepid Museum, visitors can experience a legendary aircraft carrier, the first space shuttle, the world’s fastest jets and a guided missile submarine.
Visit the space shuttle Enterprise. It was the 1st orbiter built & began service in 1977. Designed to be an atmosphere and ground test vehicle, it never saw space flight.
"A fully functional aircraft carrier ship + submarine + planes (Concorde, helicopters, Space Shuttle, etc.) – what’s not to love? Don't miss the yearly screening of Top Gun on the flight deck."
If you get the chance, attend a concert or a movie screening on the deck of this amazing museum. It’s magical. We also love exploring the insides of this historical gem.
Operation Slumber invites families to sleepover on the WWII aircraft carrier! For ages 6-17; call 646-381-5010 to reserve a space.Powered by ParentsConnect.com
The Intrepid is a spectacular spot for the 4th. Try to get on and see the fireworks. It'll make you feel very patriotic.
The audio tour is a good investment. Also, get there early! On weekends on good days it will be crowded and you will wait.
Buy tickets online and skip the long line. Pick them up at will call
Space Shuttle Enterprise will soon be winging its way to NYC! To join in the conversation and get behind the scenes updates, follow us @IntrepidMuseum and use #IntrepidShuttle
Make sure you take the time to explore. They exhibit much more than the hangar and flight decks on the Intrepid.
spend lots of time
On 5/7/12, I was here to announce new initiatives to help NYC's veterans find jobs and housing:
Take one of our ferries right over to our Midtown Terminal. From Midtown, it is only a few minutes to get to the Intrepid. A must see attraction in NYC.
Don't forget to stop by the restoration tent on the Flight Deck of the Intrepid. Here's a pic of the Museum’s Aircraft Restoration team working on a F3H Demon jet fighter.
Every day at 10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm, and 4:30pm, Intrepid Educators lead free, interactive demonstrations in the Space Shuttle Pavilion. Join us for fun scientific exploration!
March is Women's History Month and Salute to Women at Intrepid!
One of my fav museums in New York, especially if you're into planes (or subs) Worth every penny to view the aircraft carrier and the planes incl Concorde, F16 among others

Start you visit by watching the Intrepid Movie -- its less than 10 minutes and gives you an amazing overview of Intrepid and all who served aboard her
Best spot for boys from 6 to 60
The intrepid does movie nights during the summer. Pretty awesome, and free! Get in line early -- they start handing out tickets @ 6:30p and it's first come first serve. Bring a picnic but no booze :(
Be sure to stop by to see the full-scale replica of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo, which is on display on our flight deck through April 23.
The Flight Deck at the Intrepid museum holds most of Intrepid's collection of authentically restored aircraft and also facilitates the Space Shuttle Pavilion, which holds the space shuttle Enterprise.
Also, their summer movie nights are a must-do at least once. Incredible view, great movie choices, and free! I really enjoyed it a - well worth the trip to NY for the night. Info on their website.
Take the ferry over! NY Waterway packages here: http://bit.ly/K9K8Wp
It's strange but the soap in the bathroom is incredible!!
Head up to the Flight Deck to get an up-close look at nearly two dozen aircraft, including the Avenger torpedo bomber and the A-12 blackbird. The history of mobility at its finest.
What is faster: the A-12 Blackbird or Santa’s sleigh? (Hint: Rudolph can reportedly reach supersonic speeds.)
Too much to do in one day. But def see the port side of the ship, most people don't usually go there and the submarine.
Check out the crew galley, down the hall from the Au Bon Pain
Go take time out and visit this important museum.
Great place to share modern US history with the kids!
Such a wonderful idea to reuse the ship. I will come back to check out the free movie events in the summer.
Great museum, not too miss.
La escena de Will Smith jugando con un palo de golf en Soy leyenda, se filmó en este barco. Mirá la foto
Gran lugar! En este portaaviones hay muchas naves que aparecieron en varias películas. Además al costado hay un Concorde ;)
