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

So glad we went! This was one of the highlights of our NYC trip. Lots to see and learn about. Do include the audio tour or guided tour if you have time. We didn't pay extra for the space shuttle as we had visited Kennedy Space Centre the summer before. I'm sure that would be exciting as well.

We had a NY Pass, so the entry was free. There is a bit of a lineup to the submarine - so it's better to go there first. This museum is an excellent compromise for guys if afterwards you decide to do an artsy museum (like the MET) or go shopping. Lots of planes, helicopters and other things to take... More

Went there with sons (10 and 8), husband and father. All males loved it. They boys loved the submarine, which was a bit tight for me, checking out all the planes, pretending to shoot the guns and playing in the interactive area (good for 5-10 year olds). Adults liked seeing the history of the boat, talking to people who served... More

So many options, good price for tickets to Interpid, you have to pay extra for everythig else. First go to Space Shuttle (extra 7$) on top (Flight) deck of Intreship. Entreprise is massive. Go to Captans room, navigation, take a few pictures of airplains on deck and go inside, is so HOT on main desk in summer. So much space... More

Tough call for me. I don't like all the gung-ho stuff but on the other hand I used to work in Aerospace and the technology is fascinating, especially older stuff. So I took my 12 year old son while my wife and daughter shopped. We did the cheapest tour that included the USS Growler submarine. The technology and history are... More

This was a great museum. My oldest son could've stayed all day. We chose to come because the museum had a space shuttle but enjoyed everything else as well. There are interactive exhibits inside suitable for children. This museum even hosts a special needs morning monthly for families who do better without the crowds. Our only problem was that the...
