Experience the Intrepid, and all it has to offer.

So much to see, So much history. A great way to spend a few hours on the west side of NY. Take a walk into a submarine, a hop on a carrier.

Having visited many sea & air museums in the past, this is by far the most spectacular. Start your tour on the flight deck. Not only is there an impressive display of aircraft along the entire deck, the views of the New York City skyline are breathtaking, including the new 1 World Trade Center. Level 2 is the hangar deck.... More

Excellent displays of planes including highlights such as the A-12 and Concorde. Submarine tour is a great insight into what it would be like to live down there. Space shuttle only just fits in it's building so you can't really get a good view of the whole thing.

Toured with my son during our vacation. The aircraft carrier was quite an impressive site and had a wide variety of military aircraft, both fairly old and relatively new. The below deck displays were quite informative and impressive. On one the lower decks, there is a theater (air-conditioned to boot, which came in handy during the day of our visit)... More

We visited with 2 eleven year olds and they really enjoyed seeing all the planes, learning how people live in air craft carriers and the space shuttle. Our only complaint is that even though we has bought tickets on line as part of another tour, we still has to stand in a long line to exchange our "vouchers" into actual... More

The Intrepid was quite a special treat for me. I went by myself and had the time to read all the information for each display and really check out the whole museum. I think that everyone should see this museum and learn more about our history and the wonderful people who protected our country.

I love wartime museums and memorabilia and this is still one of the most impressive places I have been. Not only in there the vessel itself but there are hundreds of other boats, planes and even a US Submarine to go and play in. The weather was fab for us so the photo ops were amazing, nearly matching the exhibits... More

A full day treat for history buffs and those interested in space exploration all in one place! Climb around on the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier or inside The Growler Submarine or underneath the massive Enterprise Space Shuttle --- what could be more impressive?

We went to this museum during the week, so the crowds were minimal. It was nice seeing the history behind the Intrepid. I am very glad we made time to visit this attraction

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
