Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Honor. Educate. Inspire. The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is a nonprofit, educational institution featuring the legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid, the space shuttle Enterprise, the world’s fastest jets and a guided missile submarine.
(14331)

Through exhibitions, educational programming and the foremost collection of technologically groundbreaking aircraft and vessels, visitors of all ages and abilities are taken on an interactive journey through history to learn about American innovation and bravery. The Intrepid Museum was founded in 1982 with the acquisition of the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, now a National Historic Landmark, which served tours of duty in World War II and the Vietnam War, and was a recovery vessel for the Gemini and Mercury space missions. Welcoming over one million visitors annually, the Museum includes the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle that paved the way for America’s successful Space Shuttle Program. On display are more than two dozen authentically restored aircraft, including the Lockheed A-12 Blackbird, the world’s fastest military jet and spy plane, and the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean. The Museum also includes the submarine Growler, the only American diesel-powered strategic missile submarine open to the public; the Exploreum Interactive Hall, a fully interactive exhibit space; an 18,000 sq. ft. education center; and Pier 86, a publicly accessible pier that is part of the Hudson River Park Trust. The mission of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is to promote the awareness and understanding of history, science and service through its collections, exhibitions and programming in order to honor our heroes, educate the public and inspire our youth. The new Intrepid Museum is a unique journey filled with spectacular interactive exhibits and virtual, multi-sensory technology. The Intrepid Museum is a dynamic adventure for visitors of all ages and offers group packages, member benefits, birthday parties, special event packages and educational programs. Located at 12th Avenue and 46th Street, Intrepid is easy to get to by mass transit, car or water taxi. Learn more: http://www.intrepidmuseum.org/

Hello and a happy New Year! I’m sure you know what it is like when a child wants different things all the time: “Daddy, I want this, I want that”. For a couple of months I’ve been telling my four year old son: “Do you know what I want?” Meanwhile he knows what I’m up to: “A space shuttle, Daddy! But I don’t have one!” That’s an easy way for me to stay out of trouble. Or should I write, it was an easy way?! Recently he remembered that we had seen a space shuttle in your museum during our wonderful New York City holiday in 2019. Selfless as he is, my son told me to ask you how much he has to spend to buy me your space shuttle. He can offer you a couple of Euros and maybe some gummy bears. What do you think? Stay healthy! Best regards from Germany, Florian
