You must go in the submarine but attention at the doors (they are smallest like in the films) ! Very interesting.

We had a wonderful experience on the Intrepid. Not just because of the 'big ticket' items like the Concorde or Space Shuttle, which were, of course, spectacular, but because of exhibits like the recreation of the hospital ward aboard the Intrepid.

Amazing day had. So much to see and do. Although the aircraft are outside there is so much inside too, so perfect if the weather is too hot or too cold. I loved that there were employees/volunteers working on the ship that actually had been on it when it was in service and were happy to chat to you about their experiences. The space shuttle is also incredible and so much to see, read and interactive things. We paid extra to go on Concorde which was just incredible to say we went on this magnificent plane especially as there are very few around the world. As with all tourist attractions the food and drink were overpriced. We shared a drink and muffin to cut the cost down. Yes I would highly recommend this as a must to do in NYC.

It’s amazing that you can see an aircraft carrier an array of aircraft, a space shuttle, Concorde and a nuclear submarine all in one place! However, the Intrepid itself could be improved with more information displays or ways to bring the actual ship to life.
The standard ticket is $33 but if you want to try any of the additional exhibits E.g. the Concorde tour these are all at an additional cost which would add up significantly. Overall it’s worth a visit but probably not a must see.

So, if you are a serving member of an allied military force, serving or retired they will not recognise you for a concession entry. Even when you have full I.D to back it up!! They were infact down right rude about it. Same wars, same blood shed and yet no recognition. The museum is good with the Enterprise the real draw for me but with a very disappointed feeling from the start made me feel like this attraction knows nothing about what it is to serve in a military force and yet everywhere in the museum is about military hero's!!

As an aviation enthusiast and pilot the Intrepid was on my must see list for our New York trip.

The overall experience is very good and I would recommend it. Seeing a shuttle up close was worth the price of admission alone and the exhibit is really well done. Some of the planes out in the open are looking a little the worse for wear.

There is an immersive video of the kamikaze attacks on the ship that we would recommend, runs about once an hour.

I'm so thankful for the reviewers ahead of me/giving great advice on how to make this museum the most pleasurable/successful visit! I also called them directly for advice on when most crowded, etc. IMO, this is the ONLY way to do this museum to get the most enjoyment: 1) Go on a M-Wed when first opens, tickets in advance, be in line 20-30 mins early!! Go on a Thursday (we did) if need, can be hit/miss with crowds, NEVER a Fri-Sun/holiday. 2) Skip the exhibits when first pass security, go straight and do submarine. 3) If with kids like us, then go straight past more exhibits to the simulator rides - fabulous, esp G force!! Can buy tickets even onsight since kids wanted to ride more than once. 4) Then do exhibits, movies, Concorde - amazing!!! Cafe was also great, can order in advance but didn't take long otherwise. We spent 7 hours and it was fabulous, highly recommend!!

Great museum. Boys will love this. Plan on at least 3 hours. Simulators and interactive exhibits. Take the time to talk to the guides as lots of them are ex-sailors with great stories. Submarine, space shuttle, Concorde and an F14 Top Gun style! What's not to love.

i'd give this a zero or negative number if I could. Don't bother trying to get in it is a disorganized mess, I bought a timed ticket and it was mayhem when i arrived, was told would be minimum 30 minute wait in hot baking sun. The timed ticket line was at a complete standstill, while the ppl showing up to buy tickets - that line was moving. Just utter chaos, avoid this at all costs.

Went on a very hot July day with my husband and 3 teenage sons. We arrived just before 4pm...were told we would only need 1.5..to 2 hours to see everything...we rushed round but still didn't see everything...I would suggest at least 3 hours. Boys loved it...Great to look around the aircraft carrier, the planes onboard. Lots of interactive stuff to do in the hangar area..not all working, but boys had fun with what was. We didn't pay for any extras..was pleased we didn't.. as def wouldn't have had time to do them! Had to queue for submarine...worth it though...boys loved it. Great views of the river and manhattan too.
