On display are more than two dozen authentically restored aircraft, including the Lockheed A-12 Blackbird, the world's fastest military jet and spy plane, and the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean. The Museum also includes the submarine Growler, the only American diesel-powered strategic missile submarine open to the public; the Exploreum Interactive Hall, a fully interactive exhibit space; an 18,000 sq. ft. education center; and Pier 86, a publicly accessible pier that is part of the Hudson River Park Trust.

This museum just wasn't worth the money, frankly. It's $33 pp for adults, and an additional ten bucks for an audio guide, so we're talking nearly $100 for the basic museum for two people. I found out AFTER we bought this basic package that going inside the Concorde isn't even included in that price. Just to compare, you can get... More

This was the high point for me. Extremely well done and interesting. Got to see the Space Shuttle and Concord. The Intrepid itself is amazing.

If you have any interest in history (and even if you don't) this is a great place to visit. Included in your ticket are access to The Intrepid aircraft carrier, tour of the Growler submarine and access to the Space Shuttle experience. Seeing planes, helicoters, space crafe up close was amazing.

Intrepid's deck has some very interesting aircrafts such as my favorite F-14 Tomcat but many of them have nothing to do with an aircraft carrier. Unfortunately part of the Carrier is off limits, deck below has been gutted, cabins have been replaced with inauthentic displays, her flight deck also hosts the hangar for the Space Shuttle, which is quite dark,...

We spent about 2.5 hours here and wish we'd had more time! The submarine is worth waiting for and the volunteers were very informative

I had been before, but my wife had not. Last time I took a private tour on the Growler, whereas this time we chose the Concorde. Both are amazing, as is the ship itself. We spent an hour just walking through all the nooks and crannies of the ship and probably still missed some parts. Well worth an afternoon.

There is so much on offer here, you could easily spend half a day. They have preserved areas all over The Intrepid so you can get a good sense of what living and working here was like. You can also go aboard a submarine (you have to be prepared to squeeze through some small doorways!). There is a cool, interactive... More

We had the best tour guide. Isaiah, was our tour guide for the Intrepid. He was so knowledgeable and so kind. He knew everything about the Intrepid and where she had been and the things she had done. It was one of the highlights of our trip!!!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
