The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is the only museum in the world where visitors can experience a legendary aircraft carrier, the first space shuttle, the world’s fastest jets, and a guided missile submarine.

The museum’s mission to promote the awareness and understanding of history, science, and service through its collections, exhibitions, and programming to honor American heroes and to educate the public.

Aircraft Carrier Intrepid

Launched in 1943, the former aircraft carrier USS Intrepid fought in World War II, surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. The ship later served in the Cold War and the Vietnam War.

Intrepid also served as a NASA recovery vessel in the 1960s. It was decommissioned in 1974, and today is berthed on the Hudson River as the centerpiece of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Space Shuttle Pavilion

The Space Shuttle Pavilion

This showcases the space shuttle Enterprise, the prototype NASA orbiter that paved the way for America’s successful space shuttle program. Seventeen dynamic exhibit zones feature original artifacts, photographs, audio, and films that immerse visitors in the science and history of Enterprise and the space shuttle era.

Submarine Growler

Growler first opened at the Intrepid Museum in 1989 and is the only American guided missile submarine open to the public. Growler offers visitors a firsthand look at life aboard a submarine and a close-up inspection of the once “top-secret” missile command center.

British Airways Concorde

The fastest Atlantic Ocean crossing by any Concorde occurred on February 7, 1996 and took only 2 hours, 52 minutes and 59 seconds. This record-breaking plane—the Concorde Alpha Delta G-BOAD—is on display at the Intrepid Museum’s Pier 86.
