Founded in 1982, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum sees over one million visitors a year. Children and adults alike are drawn to the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, now a National Historic Landmark, which served during World War II and the Vietnam War and was a recovery vessel for the Gemini and Mercury space missions.
The Intrepid also includes the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle, along with the submarine Growler and 28 authentically restored aircrafts – including the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean, and the Lockheed A-12, the world’s fastest military jet and spy plane.
It's a must-visit NYC attraction for tourists and locals alike and it's easily accessible by Citi Bike from anywhere in the city!
