A non-profit educational organization, The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, houses the renowned aircraft carrier Intrepid, the space shuttle Enterprise, the fastest planes in the world, and a guided missile submarine. Visitors of all ages and abilities are led on an interactive trip through history to learn about American invention and courage via exhibits, educational activities, and the world’s most extensive collection of technologically innovative aircraft and boats.


The Intrepid Museum was established in 1982 with the purchase of the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, which fought in World War II, the Vietnam War, and as a recovery vessel for the Gemini and Mercury space missions and is now a National Historic Landmark.


The Space Shuttle Pavilion, which welcomes over one million people each year, is home to Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle, which opened the path for America’s successful space shuttle program. The Lockheed A-12, the world’s fastest military jet, spy plane, and the British Airways Concorde, the quickest commercial aircraft to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean, are among the 28 authentically restored aircraft on show. The Growler, the only American diesel-powered strategic missile submarine open to the public, an 18,000-square-foot education center, Pier 86, a publicly accessible pier run by the Hudson River Park Trust, and the Exploreum, an interactive hall focused on water, space, air, and life at sea, round out the Museum.


The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s objective is to remember the heroes, educate the public, and inspire the children by promoting knowledge and understanding of history, science, and service via its collections, exhibits, and activities.


All visitors, including individuals with disabilities, their peers, and their families, are supported and enhanced by the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum’s unique activities and services. In addition, personal care aides who come to the Museum to assist visitors with impairments are also given free entry. The deal is only available at the Museum’s box office.


Visitors’ immunization status is no longer checked at the Intrepid Museum. However, for everyone’s safety, they continue to demand masks for visitors aged three and up in all interior Museum locations.


Their primary focus is the health and safety of the workers, volunteers, and visitors. For children aged three and older, the Intrepid Museum will continue to demand masks worn in all interior venues. This covers both employees and guests. In the following weeks, they’ll keep an eye on the advice of health experts to see whether the mask policy has to be revised. They offer an engaging experience in a safe environment by implementing these procedures.
