A must visit. We took the extra WW II guided tour. Ron, our very capable tour guide, had us back to 1944 and the Battle of Layte Gulf. Well worth the extra time to appreciate the sacrifices many made and the unknown history. You will walk away more informed and appreciative. We didn't even visit the shuttle or other exhibits, but encourage you to do so. My 2nd cousin was a SB2C pilot in '44, aboard the fighting I. He was lost in an air battle. So this ship is personal to me, maybe to you also. Parking is close by.

We were knackered from miles of walking so probably did not make the most if it. Bit annoying having to wait ages to get into the submarine but worth it when we did. The planes on the deck are cool. Disappointing the shuttle was shut on our visit.

It is always a special treat to walk through such a big part of Naval history. I especially the space race history that the Intrpid was responsible for as the primary astronaut recovery vessel for the Mercury and Gemini missions. Space shuttle pavilion was closed the day we toured which wD disappointing. I wish we could have toured more of the ship as I have experienced with another of the museum carriers. Very much appreciate the veterans and volunteer docents that bring the exhibit to life. The most interesting exhibit was the USS Growler, one of the first nuclear cruise missile submarines!

This tour includes a tour of the only US submarine you can tour.
The Space Shuttle in also included.
Tour will take about 2-3 hours.

Had a great time here with the highlight for me being going aboard the Concorde on a guided tour.

More to see than you would expect, and would recommend allowing up to 3 hours to see everything without rushing.

We were there early and in November so no lines at all, and not crowded inside. Would have expected more planes but it was ok.
Well worth the time and money.
Spent about two and a half hours there.

I spent 3 hours on a Sunday as I needed to be in NYC on business Monday. My impressions are colored because I have visited Battleship Cove in Fall River, Ma where the WWII battleship USS Massachusetts, WWII Sub Lionfish and other exhibits I find very appealing for their authenticity.

The Intrepid on the other hand was not an authentic experience. Due to buildings on the flight deck, particularly that which houses the first space shuttle Enterprise, it was impossible to experience the size of the ship. The building at the stern cuts off perhaps 20 to 25% of the length of the deck making it not only impossible to experience a view of the deck but also prohibited walking to the end of the deck. This was a very serious disappointment. The shuttle should be on the pier where its building will not ruin the deck experience.

The hangar deck was absolutely inauthentic. They have converted it into an amusement park and not an experience of a hangar deck. Very disappointing.

Only the island, a small part of the deck below the hangar deck and a small section forward the hangar deck were authentic.

The intrepid was very much a disappointment. Even on the pier, there is no unobstructed view from bow to stern. Too many modern buildings and bulky stairways have been built. A terrible decision.

The Growler was a better experience as it was largely authentic. The Intrepid might well be a large museum building as nearly all of the historic authenticity has been destroyed.

And, while compared with the USS Massachusetts where one can explore most of all the decks from the bridge to the actual bottom of the ship, there is no access to perhaps 90% of most of the inside of the Intrepid, excluding the hangar deck, which is, essentially, cleansed of all authenticity.

The Intrepid museum was a true disappointment if you are looking for authenticity.

Visited Intrepid on a New York City Pass. Large number of aircraft on display. A Concorde is also just next to Intrepid. We had our 13 year old son with us and he was amazed at the size of the vessel. Lots of information available on the main hangar deck as well as several film shows and educational experiences. Well worth a visit.

When walking from Times Square to the Circle Line Cruises (at Pier 83 on 42nd) along 44th, 45th, or 46th Street, one has no choice but to walk past the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier anchored at Pier 86 on 46th Street with actual jets visible on its flattop. It is a majestic-looking ship looking both noble and battle-worn. We walked past it uttering “Wow” and “Very nice”, took some pictures, and wished that we had had more time to be able to go aboard and tour it. Unfortunately there was no time in our schedule for a tour of this impressive warship.
