Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum

Planes, Ships, Shuttles and More!

The Intrepid Museum is a such a great New York City attraction and offers something for the whole family. It was one of my favorite things to do in NYC as a kid. New in 2019, the Intrepid offers FREE Fridays the last Friday of every month, April through September from 5:00pm–8:00pm.

The Museum is centered on the aircraft carrier Intrepid (CVS-11), one of the most successful ships in US history and features a range of interactive exhibits and events providing a snapshot of heroism, education, and excitement and one of the most unique attractions in New York City. With outdoor movies in the summer, Kids Week in February and special Veteran’s Day activities, the Intrepid has something for everyone all year round.

Intrepid Museum and Space Shuttle Exhibit

We loved the Intrepid! We learned a ton about different old and new war planes and ships and got to take a lot of cool pictures with all of them.

Intrepid Sea Air & Space Museum

The museum itself is on the the former aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, which fought in World War II, surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. Then it went on to serve in the Cold War and the Vietnam War.

NYC Insider Tip: While we loved everything in the general Intrepid Museum, we were not impressed with the Space Shuttle Pavilion. The most interesting thing we saw there was how the Enterprise got it’s name, which was basically avid Star Trek fans petitioning NASA. Both Alex and I say, save the $7 and skip it.

She then served as a NASA astronaut recovery vessel before being retired in 1974. Now the Intrepid is berthed on the Hudson River as the Intrepid Sea, air and Space Museum complex.
