Even in a place as packed with cultural attractions as New York City, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum stands out as a one-of-a-kind museum experience. This floating museum offers an interactive exploration of U.S. military history aboard a 900-foot-long aircraft carrier docked along the Hudson River. The massive USS Intrepid aircraft carrier, which sustained five kamikaze attacks in World War II, is now a National Historic Landmark and home to hands-on exhibits, multimedia displays, a space shuttle, spy plane, and strategic missile submarine – all divided among four different decks accessible via elevators or stairs.

The Hangar Deck makes for a wonderful first stop, since it is the USS Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum’s main indoor exhibit space. Here, you will find an information desk, as well as a short film about the USS Intrepid's history and an interactive exhibit about Medal of Honor recipients. The 13,000-square-foot Exploreum Hall that is a hit with kids of all ages, thanks to a variety of hands-on exhibits where kids can experience a flight simulator, transmit messages in Morse code, and get a sense of what it was like to live on a warship by climbing into the claustrophobic crew quarters where naval officers ate, slept, and prepared for battle. The topics of air and space are also the main focus of the Flight Deck, which boasts an outdoor exhibit showcasing a range of aircraft including, helicopters, fighter jets and even an A-12 Blackbird spy plane.  

Why Go?

Best Known For:
Fascinating museum highlighting more airplanes than you’ve ever been able to see in person

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is on an aircraft carrier. An actual aircraft carrier. That alone makes the experience both unique and amazing. You’ll learn about life aboard the Intrepid during World War Two, when it was attacked five times by kamikaze fighters, and it’s modernization to enter the fleet of Cold War vessels. Plus, get up close and personal with all kinds of airplanes, from the Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and even a few international options as well. And if for some reason you’re not impressed with the more earthbound aircrafts, you can check out an actual space shuttle, the Enterprise. It’s a humbling and inspiring day perfect for history buffs, aviation nerds, and kids of all ages.
