The Intrepid was on my husband's wish list for our trip to New York City, and I was skeptical, but willing to give it a go. Boy, am I glad I did. In a city full of fine art, historic sites, incredible shopping, and amazing theatre experiences, this is a treasure that should not be overlooked! The opportunity to climb... More

This location is a must-see well worth the entry price. We only spent a few hours here but got to see the most important things including a quick walk through Growler (the submarine), external viewing of the Concorde on display plus the additional fee to see the Enterprise Space Shuttle Exhibit not to mention the many levels of the Intrepid...

This was a very impressive attraction - lots to see - we could have stayed much longer than we did in fact. With the submarine, Concorde - the planes on the flight deck and the space shuttle ( dont miss it even if a little extra) . We were also impressed by the volunteers -many of whom seemed to be...

We visited on a rainy afternoon and enjoyed the info from the veterans. The submarine Growler in cramped and not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. Kids were having a ball in the hanger deck.

Spent three hours looking around the submarine (Growler) and the Intrepid. Fantastic display of fighter planes on the deck. Including the A12 blackbird. (The stealth) capable of flying three times the speed of sound and at 90,000 feet. This was in commission in the 1960's, completely incredible. Leaves the question what are they capable of doing today fifty years on?... More

How can one not love the Intrepid museum? In the heart of NYC you can experience a WWII, Vietnam, and Cold War aircraft carrier replete with dozens of planes and helicopters from all over the world, both civilian and military. One can spend hours there, and I did, going through the many levels of the carrier, the USS Growler, Concorde... More

I wanted to see the space shuttle so we went to this museum. The old airplanes on the flight deck were an extra bonus. We enjoyed this very much.

This is such a special exhibit of an aircraft carrier, submarine, and the Concord. We have been here many times and it is breathtaking. The display of playing on the main deck is so cool. Make sure you stay and watch the videos.

While I never had the privilege of serving aboard a naval ship, being aboard the Intrepid for several hours was a unique pleasure. There is so much to see and do aboard the carrier that you should truthfully allot at least half a day to take in the entire attraction. In the time I was aboard, I visited the bridge,... More

My reason for rating this not as good as a previous visit a few years ago was that I feel it has become a bit too commercial in the sense that the first time I came the Concorde was free to visit as it was included in your standard entry, however now you need to pay for standard entry and... More
