The Basics

Standard admission to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum generally includes access to the carrier flight deck, gallery deck, and mess deck, as well as the Space Shuttle Pavilion (where theEnterprise space shuttle is held), and theUSS Growler submarine. While the British Airways Concorde can be seen from outside, the interior can only be accessed by private tour. Visitors can pre-purchase an admission ticket that allows quick access via a dedicated advanced sales entrance, and upgrade to include the simulator rides. Multi-stop package tours often combine skip-the-line access to the museum with early access to the Empire State Building observation deck, a visit to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, guided bus tours, or hop-on hop-off boat tours along the Hudson River.

This museum was mind blowing. You don’t need to know much about history to enjoy being in a sub or a giant fighter ship. There were great displays and the walk through gives you a good idea of what life was like for those sailors.

We had a great time! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food at the cafeteria was AMAZING! I had the turkey bacon wrap, and never had a more delicious one anywhere before.

We liked the 3-D movie ride and the F15 fighter plane Simulator. Both amusements can can be updated.

We loved this "museum". So much to do and experience. We went on a wet day so it was perfect. The only thing we didn't do was to allow enough time to see everything.

Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum Admission Ticket
I mainly went to this museum to see the nice collection of planes they had. I left having learned a lot about a renowned warship in US history, life at sea, one of the first submarines with nuclear strike capacity and was awed by the first space shuttle orbiter ever built. My only regret is that the day wasn't long enough for me to take the concorde tour. Next time!

Spent a great couple of hours here... Aircraft on the flight deck are looking very tired now (this is my 3rd time on the Intrepid over the last 10 years) Space Shuttle was well worth the admission on it's own.
