Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Tours

star-4.5
240 Reviews
Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

The World War II-era USS Intrepid aircraft carrier retired to Manhattan’s West Side, where it was transformed into a museum. The complex hosts noteworthy craft, including NASA’s Enterprise space shuttle, the USS Growler missile submarine, and a Concorde jet. While there, check out original artifacts, film, and photographs, plus simulators that recreate the flying experience. 


The Basics

Standard admission to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum generally includes access to the carrier flight deck, gallery deck, and mess deck, as well as the Space Shuttle Pavilion (where the Enterprise space shuttle is held), and the USS Growler submarine. While the British Airways Concorde can be seen from outside, the interior can only be accessed by private tour. Visitors can pre-purchase an admission ticket that allows quick access via a dedicated advanced sales entrance, and upgrade to include the simulator rides. Multi-stop package tours often combine skip-the-line access to the museum with early access to the Empire State Building observation deck, a visit to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, guided bus tours, or hop-on hop-off boat tours along the Hudson River.


Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is a must-do for anyone with an interest in maritime, aviation, or military history.

  • Many sightseeing passes, including New York CityPASS, New York City Explorer Pass, the New York Sightseeing Pass, and the New York Pass, grant holders free—and in some cases skip-the-line—entry to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. 

  • Allow at least two to three hours to properly explore the complex.

  • Most of the museum is wheelchair-accessible with the exception of the forecastle (the forward deck), combat information center, the interior of the Growler submarine, and the Concorde. 

  • In the hot summer months, bring a hat, sunscreen, and water. 


How to Get There

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is located at Pier 86 (12th Avenue and 46th Street) in Hell’s Kitchen. Ride the A,C, or E subway line to 42nd Street and walk west toward the waterfront. Or, take the M34 (34th Street), M42 (42nd Street), or M50 (49th Street) crosstown buses to 12th Avenue and the Hudson River.


When to Get There

The museum is busiest during summer weekends and school holidays. Lines form but usually move pretty quickly. Mornings are the quietest time to visit. Book tickets in advance to save time.


Intrepid After Dark

For an even more immersive experience, opt for an overnight stay on the Intrepid. During sleepovers, visitors get to enjoy a buffet dinner, explore the exhibitions after hours, sleep on the hangar deck, and have breakfast onboard.

Address: Pier 86, 166 W 46th Street, 10036, USA

Well worth a visit

We loved this "museum". So much to do and experience. We went on a wet day so it was perfect. The only thing we didn't do was to allow enough time to see everything.

I mainly went to this museum to see the nice collection of planes they had. I left having learned a lot about a renowned warship in US history, life at sea, one of the first submarines with nuclear strike capacity and was awed by the first space shuttle orbiter ever built. My only regret is that the day wasn't long enough for me to take the concorde tour. Next time!
