Good museum for families

The Intrepid is a great place for everyone! Lots of airplanes on display, plus a Space Shuttle and the Concord if you pay extra.

This was one of the first things I did in New York on the tourist portion of this trip and I thought this venue was amazing! My father was Air Force so I've seen a lot of aircraft but not so much Navy. To have a chance to see some of the hangar deck of the Intrepid and a submarine... More

We decided to go here because we had heard good things and the boys (9 and 5) really wanted to visit it. It was a little difficult to figure out how to get in- and there are many ticketing options, so you would need to review that before you get there. Once you get inside though- there is so much...

I purchased my tickets in advance so you went to the will call booth ( shorter queues than the main line) The flight deck has lots of aircraft including the Shuttle Enterprise in its own pavillion and the Lockheed Oxcart. The bridge was great and going into the hanger and the sleeping quarters was fascinating. The food area was closed... More

We took a tour of the Intrepid, which was well worth the money since we were able to use one of the flight lifts to get from one deck to another. The guide was very knowledgeable. We did not visit the space shuttle since we visited one in Florida, but we enjoyed the ship and the submarine.

15 Minutes from Times square you can tour an aircraft carrier, a nuclear submarine, see the space shuttle and view 30+ US fighter jets. Do the audio tour of the US Intrepid. Apart from the history and context the tour gives they tell you how it was used by the rescue services as their HQ during 9/11. If it was... More

If you like things about airplanes and aerospace this place it is for you. Intrepid is a huge aircraft carrier. You can see several airplanes. The entrance it's expensive.

This is brilliant! The walk up to the ship gives great opportunities for photos and the size of it is breathtaking. It carries about 35 jets on the deck and has many levels to explore. There are Audi tours as well as tour guided tours but we chose to go it alone at our own pace. The different deck show... More

Our large family group of 10 split in two: half went shopping, half to Intrepid. Intrepid was definitely the better choice! Just a 15 minute walk from Times Square, the Intrepid easily entertains the whole family for a full day. Grab an audio guide on the way in, as it takes the already excellent exhibits to a new level, giving... More

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.
