INTREPID, SEA, AIR AND SPACE MUSEUM TOUR DURATION
When planning your trip, make sure you can spend two to three hours on the Intrepid for the full experience.
Visitors must be at least 48 inches tall to ride the G-Force simulator, and 38 inches tall to ride the Transporter FX and the XD Theater.
The Space Shuttle Pavilion will not be open until Spring 2013. Until then, please enjoy a new exhibit entitled Space Shuttle Enterprise: A Pioneer.
There are several audio tours available in multiple languages, including one narrated by pilots, crew members and notable American military leaders, with stories from former President George H.W. Bush, General Colin Powell, Senator John McCain and astronaut Scott Carpenter. Another audio tour is aimed at children, and yet another for the hearing impaired.
Most areas of the Intrepid are wheelchair accessible, excluding the Fo'c's'le, Combat Information Center, Growler submarine and Concorde.
General admission includes access to the Growler and Concorde.
For an extra fee, hop on a 90-minute tour led by a knowledgeable tour guide who will walk you through the highlights of the hangar and flight decks.
The guided tour includes several behind-the-scenes stops that are off-limits to regular museum visitors.
