The Intrepid Museum is exceptional. It is a well preserved testament to the might of the American Navy and its commitment to the exploration of Space. Well worth the fee to come on board and spend the day.

A most impressive museum with sooo much to see and experience. The Growler submarine tour was a highlight as were all the fighter aircraft and the NASA space shuttle display!

Great morning here. Got to go inside a submarine, see a Space shuttle and much more. It was a bit cold in November on the deck of the carrier so wrap up well.

Absolutely! I would recommend the Intrepid for anyone from 6 years of age or older. They even have sleepovers for Boy Scout groups.
