Manhattan's military and maritime history museum, Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum houses a large collection of craft that includes an aircraft carrier, submarine, NASA's prototype space shuttle, and a supersonic reconnaissance plane. Originally opened in 1982, the museum underwent a 22-year renovation of its facilities, reopening in 2008. You can access it by public bus or subway, and spend the day journeying through the evolution of sea, air, and space vessels. The Space Shuttle Pavilion showcases Enterprise, named after the starship from the popular "Star Trek" TV series and built to perform test flights in the atmosphere, along with artifacts, photos, audio, and films covering NASA's space shuttle program.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the intrepid and the 'growler' submarine. It was really interesting to walk about and see how the crew lived and the technology used, we were lucky to speak to some ...  more »
  • Where else can you stand on an Aircraft carrier, walk through a submarine and stand underneath the space shuttle. If you like engineering history this is a must for you.  more »

  • Going to this museum was great, I will thank Bank of America for sponsoring my ticket because of my Military status. This museum holds so much, it is great for everyone in the family. Be able to see the Enterprise Space Shuttle was awesome. The museum as bathrooms that are comfortable and has a small restaurant to get something while visiting. Just remember is NYC so everything is a little more pricey. I attached a couple of pictures from my experience. I recommend this museum for your next trip in NYC.
  • Fascinating museum. Filled with displays and allows you to walk through the gutted insides of the ship. There are multiple gun emplacements you can stand on. The flight deck has over 15 planes and helicopters with plaques explaining their creation, mission and country of origin. There is also a space hall that has a huge space shuttle inside of it. This is filled with interesting tidbits about the shuttle. Overall a wonderful trip if a little pricey.
  • We didn’t intend on doing the guided tour because it was additional money above and beyond the normal admission cost. We are extremely glad we just went with it and got the full tour. Mike was our guide and I don’t know if there is anyone that knows more about the Intrepid, it’s history and the aircraft on it. He truly was awesome. If I had known what the experience was going to be like beforehand we wouldn’t have even questioned the additional cost. Some of the other things the tour included were a ride up onto the aircraft deck from the lower level on the aircraft elevator. We were also allowed to go behind the ropes where the aircraft were and go right up to them. It was more like a VIP tour not just a guided tour. Would highly recommend and go again.
  • Very nice place to visit if you are military enthusiasts or anyone who’s interested in how military technology has improved. Very impressed about the technology that was realized more than 60 years ago. Visitors were from all different age range and nationalities. The level of details in the special Drone section was quite limited. I think it was meant for general public so the technology was not described in much detail. But surely a great place to see how drone has developed. Very very impressed and was grateful for such opportunity. I have already recommended this place to dozens of my friends. Thank you guys!
