Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

Pier 86, West 46th Street & 12th Avenue, New York, NY 10036 - United States





Explore history, science and service at the Intrepid Museum. Walk the decks of the legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid, a National Historic Landmark, and see 28 aircraft, including the world’s fastest military jet. Get an up-close look at the space shuttle Enterprise and British Airways Concorde, and enter Growler, the only guided missile submarine open to the public. The Museum also features the Exploreum, a fully interactive exhibit space where you can climb into a real Bell 47 helicopter and land a space shuttle.


A new permanent Photo Lab exhibit is now open, examining the critical and unsung role of photographer’s mates and the importance of documenting all aspects of life on board a naval ship. Other newly-restored spaces include Intrepid’s pilot escalator, which has been restored and made available to the public for the first time in decades. Visitors will also have the opportunity to peek into one of Intrepid's bomb elevators.

Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis.
