    Really interesting
    Good idea to do this excursion. How many times do you get the chance to visit an aircraftcarrier, a submarine and a spcashuttle on one day. Lots of history, mu advice, buy tickets on like to skip the cue, including a tick for a 3d movie, very impressive, and a simulator if you want, less impressive. Arrive early, cues fur the sub can be long. If you have a ticket with timed entrance ie at 10, you will be the first to be in the sub. Lots of guide to tell about the ships too.

    Very good day out
    I chose this for my 50th birthday treat! I loved it and my wife said she really enjoyed it too. Some of the aircraft are a bit dated but still good to see and enjoyable. The craft on the main deck are really good as is the space shuttle experience. Some space on the lower deck which shows possible improvements to come but plenty to keep you entertained. We almost passed on the submarine tour but glad we didn’t - it was very interesting. A shout out to all the volunteers - some really interesting veterans with brilliant stories, make sure you speaking them and get them talking!! It’s worth it!

    Incredible family museum
    Incredible family museum to visit! My 8 year old son couldn’t get enough of the planes on the upper deck and enjoyed sitting in the captain’s seat inside. The submarine was also cool but had a line to get inside. I’d suggest checking the weather before heading here because much of it is outside on the river which can get unpleasant when rainy and/or windy.

    Prepare to be impressed.
    This is an amazing museum - everything there is just huge! The aircraft carrier itself is very impressive, and so are the planes, the space shuttle and the submarine. We enjoyed our visit very much. The exhebitions in the museum are very informative and interesting, and you could spend an entire day there. Eventhough you have to pay extra for it, you should not miss out on the 3D experience of travelling into space in the space shuttle area. It's so much fun!

    American aircraft carrier, submarine and space shuttle prototype
    Intrepid was a fascinating museum with so much to see. You could easily spend 3 or 4 hours there. We toured the submarine and the aircraft carrier. The prototype space shuttle was also there. Unfortunately, Concorde was not there at the time we visited. There were numerous exhibitions and films. The film footage of the Kamakazi pilot attacks on the ship was fascinating. There was a large number of planes and helicopters, including the 'Top Gun' type of plane. We used the New York Pass, so were able to go straight into the museum without queuing.

    Excellent Museum with lots to see.
    Excellent Museum with lots to see. Im very much into military history and space so this was very interesting. There is so much to see from aircraft from the Vietnam era to NASA Space shuttle. The ship is huge. Which saw lots of active service. I particularly liked the veterans chatting to people as you go around. Lots of tight spaces so maybe not so great for someone not very mobile. This was one of the best sites in NYC . I would highly recommend.

    Worth a visit
    Great exhibit! 2 hrs was enough for our family. Always impressive to see a space shuttle. Disappointed the concord wasn’t there, as that was one of the reasons we went. Nothing obvious on the website that it wasn’t there and no mention of its absence when buying tickets. Still plenty to see and do.

    Unbelievable experience
    Worth every penny. Loads to do and see. It is a humbling day out. Probably not the best if you have restricted mobility due to steep stairs and narrow passageways. Also if you’re claustrophobic it might not be the best especially on the submarine. Exceptional experience and I have absolutely no faults. There are veterans there who have served on the ship and can give excellent insights.

Worth a visit when in NYC. Nice setup overall and the the space shuttle was really interesting to see. The U-boat was also interesting, but be prepared to wait in line during the tour/walk.

Within the museum’s hallowed halls, echoes of history resound. Every exhibit, meticulously curated, exudes an air of authenticity. The erudite docents, adept at their craft, readily unraveled my inquiries.

This was my fiance's choice on our recent trip - I wasn't expecting too much! But he loved it and showed me the I am Legend filming location :) I loved the space shuttle and the tour through submarine. Absolute highlight though was chatting with the Veterans - so charming and eager to share their experience.
Would recommend even it it isn't 'your thing'!

Great experience of a US aircraft carrier. Great collection of historic planes, a space shuttle and submarine. Try the tour it’s a few dollars but worth it.
