New York City Getaways
The Intrepid Museum is the only museum where visitors can explore a legendary aircraft carrier, the first space shuttle, the world’s fastest jets, and a Cold War-era submarine.
The newly reopened Space Shuttle Pavilion showcases the space shuttle Enterprise, the prototype NASA orbiter that paved the way for the Space Shuttle Program. Seventeen dynamic exhibit zones feature original artifacts, photographs, audio and films that immerse visitors in the science and history of Enterprise and the space shuttle era.
Built in 1943, the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid and her crew served tours of duty through World War II and Vietnam, making seven trips around the globe and surviving five kamikaze attacks, seven bomb attacks, and one torpedo strike. She then served as a NASA recovery vessel before being retired in 1974. Now Intrepid is berthed on the Hudson River as the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.
Walk the 900-foot flight deck; climb through the hatches of the submarine Growler; tour the British Airways Concorde, the world’s fastest commercial plane; and experience what it’s like to be a pilot in the Virtual Flight Zone. Seasonal events aboard the Intrepid include Kids Week, Fleet Week, SpaceFest, Firefighter Appreciation Weekend, and more.
And don't miss the Kamikaze exhibit: Using state-of-the-art multi-screen and surround-sound technology, "Kamikaze: Day of Darkness, Day of Light" transports you back to the Intrepid as she was on that terrible day during World War II, immersing you in a second-by-second recreation of her most trying moments.
