Visited the Intrepid sea to see this old big ship and the old airplanes. It’s was a good experience. Also the enterprise. But I think the ticket is expensive.

My husband thoroughly enjoyed himself here, looking over the aircraft carrier. Photographing the aircraft on board and the Space Shuttle Enterprise. He was a happy little boy. There is a lot to see so plan to spend a couple of hours to see every thing.

Absolutely! I would recommend the Intrepid for anyone from 6 years of age or older. They even have sleepovers for Boy Scout groups.
