We took a private tour of the carrier, World War II tour. This was excellent, our guide was very knowlegable and provided a lot of insight as to how the intrepid was involved in the some of the major battles in the war. A lot of the movies on the carrier were informative and well produced. The Endeavor was interesting... More

Excellent attraction for all ages, especially the Space area so ensure you get this in your ticket, opens at 10am, best to arrive a little early to avoid the line up, if you wait until after 12 expect to wait another hour. As soon as you walk I. The submarine is on your right, if the line is NOT extending... More

This one of the hottest museums in New York City. The lines for general admissions were stretching down many avenues. When we finally reach the window, we were greeted by a very helpful employee named Jason. He gave us valuable information which saved us a lot of the time. We ended up getting a membership because one day was simply... More

If you're a fan of the military stuff this is a place to see. They have a ful deck with many great planes, there's also a submarine called USS Growler with a Regulus missile and a Concorde Plane parked outside, they charge you extra for the Concorde tour.

Well young kids are always fun to drag around even if they are interested in going on a real carrier. We got there around 10 and the lines were already decent. It was fine but I would suggest getting there earlier if you can. We bought tickets ahead of time and had to stop at will call which isn't a... More

Get the NYC pass to avoid the long queues! So much to see and do - need more than 1 day. The kids absolutely loved it. Must visit!

We intended visiting the Intrepid on Monday, when we turned up we were told it was closed for a private function and apologies that there hadn't been any information on the website. There wasn't information on the website as we had checked and there were a lot of disappointed people who had travelled there, some with several small children. They... More

I was a bit disappointed that you couldn't access as much as I thought you would of been, it was great seeing it, but I think there's better opportunities to discover more of the ship in other locations such as when I went all around one in SanDiego.

I was super rushed through the Intrepid Museum. But it was still awesome! Having the Concorde on site was certainly a plus for me. So many great displays, best part is the fact that it's on an aircraft carrier. As an aviation enthusiast this was a must see, I really wish I had more time.
