A first hand experience on an Aircraft Carrier, a visit to a submarine. From the View deck to a closer look at many fighter air crafts. You will end up spending almost half day or more but its worth it

This is a good place where you can visit interprise and others old airplanes. Can you take many photos and eat near there.

The submarine was my favourite part. However, it was the most expensive attraction we did all holiday and that was without paying for any of the extra tours. Good for kids.

Very good as museums go. Lots of steps and narrow spaces so people with restricted mobility will see less but still get to experience vast flight deck, educational movies, and the Enterprise. We did the submarine last and ended up waiting 45 minutes. Line moves...More

I have too many great things to say about the "Fighting I". My father spent a tour aboard the Intrepid in the late 1950's, so it was really neat to tour the ship that he had told us about in days gone by. There is...More
