One of the most successful ships in US History is now a national historic landmark, and one of the most unique attractions in New York City. In 1943, the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier was commissioned for service in World War II and went on to serve as a primary recovery vessel for NASA and then in Vietnam. Today the museum features a range of interactive exhibits and events that make Intrepid a snapshot of heroism, education, and excitement.

Since 1974, when Zachary Fisher saved the decommissioned Intrepid from being sent to the scrap yard, the Intrepid has become a true icon. His vision to honor our heroes by making Intrepid a lasting memorial to those who sacrificed for our country continues to be realized through the Museum’s mission to Honor our Heroes, Educate the Public, and Inspire our Youth.

Kids and adults alike find themselves immersed and inspired by the Intrepid Museum’s exhibits, which range from thrilling historical re-creations such as Kamikaze: Day of Darkness, Day of Light, to relevant displays such as Intrepid Remembers 9-11 and Defending our Future. While here, you can also ride in the A-6 Cockpit Simulator, visit a Virtual Flight Zone, or tour the inside of the world’s fastest commercial airplane, the Concorde.
