Encounter the Intrepid
Plan your visit to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, where you can explore a legendary aircraft carrier, the first space shuttle, the world’s fastest jets and a guided missile submarine. As an educational and cultural nonprofit institution centered on the aircraft carrier Intrepid, a National Historic Landmark, the Intrepid Museum has as its mission to promote the awareness and understanding of history, science, and service through its collections, exhibitions, and programming in order to honor our heroes, educate the public, and inspire our youth.
Inside the Space Shuttle Pavilion you can get up close to Enterprise, NASA’s first space shuttle, and hear the stories of the people who revolutionized space exploration. This amazing experience is engineered to inspire adults and future space pioneers alike.
And when you’re ready to come back from space, there’s an entire museum of technological innovations to explore, including the A-12 Blackbird, the submarine Growler, and the British Airways Concorde, as well as interactive exhibits and one-of-a-kind artifacts that pay tribute to the heroes who served aboard Intrepid. With our kid-friendly Exploreum Interactive Hall, thrilling simulator rides, and special tours, your visit to the Intrepid Museum offers fun and excitement for the whole family.
