Beautiful setting on the pier in midtown. Many different fighter jets from our navy and other nations on the flight deck. Shuttle exhibit a little over-rated but the hanger deck and "island" self-guided tours on the ship were truly excellent.

No matter if you're into airplanes or not you must visit this museum. You don't get to see everyday a space shuttle or the Concord having Manhattan as a background. And of course let's not forget the Blackbird. It's a fantastic opportunity for some great photos!!!

We visited as part of a pre paid tour and wished we had longer. The is lots to see and do, so worth the expense. I would say at least half a day is needed to see all that is on offer. Plus a nice cafe.

We have visited many retired ship, active duty ships and museums. Though this one offers a lot in one place, it seems like they changed too much of the structure of the ship to become a museum and it then loses some of the "feel" of being on a ship. The positive about that is the ease of getting around... More

Lots of things to see, very interesting and educational. The museum is very big and required more time than we expected. The carrier and airplanes are more impressive to see live than in pictures. Enterprise space shuttle is awesome to see in person, too bad you can't go inside.

The Intrepid is huge and there are a lot of aircrafts and other related machines and equippments to get familiar with. If you are interesting in this kind of stuff it is worth the visit.

This Air, Sea and Space Museum is indeed comprehensive. We bought the full ticket (can buy separate sections if you don't want to see everything) and began with the Intrepid itself. This aircraft carrier is jam-packed with aircraft displayed on the flight deck and the lower decks are also bursting with goodies such as space modules, helicopters, hands-on displays which... More

My husband and I participated in the Pacific war tour which lasted approximately 2 hours. Our guide, Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and made the ship's history come alive. I also loved the photos shown during the tour to really send you back in time.

The Intrepid is a converted aircraft carrier which has been converted into an sea, air and space museum. They have collected a huge amount of related hardware, making for a fascinating (and potentially lengthy) visit. The aircraft carrier itself dominates proceedings, but probably the main attraction within the attraction is the Space Shuttle Enterprise (which you need to pay extra... More

We went on the cruise along the Hudson and saw the Intrepid. It is a very prominent feature of the view from the Hudson river. When we arrived at the magnificent Intrepid, we queued for a short time and booked tickets to also have a tour of the Concorde and I'm so glad we did. Our tour guide for the... More
