Built in 1943, the USS Intrepid and her crew have a distinguished history of service, including tours of duty in both World War II and Vietnam, making seven trips around the globe and surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. She then served as NASA‘s prime recovery vessel before being retired in 1974. In 1982, the USS Intrepid began her second career as the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
Following a 2 year leave for restoration and renovation, the Intrepid Museum Complex now boasts new exhibits, interactive elements, newly opened areas of the ship and a completely restored aircraft collection, all along side the former USS Growler submarine and British Airways Concorde. Her home at Pier 86, open to the public, has also been completely renovated and now features a welcoming, park-like atmosphere.
The new Intrepid Museum is a unique journey through spectacular interactive exhibits and virtual, multi-sensory technology. Located at the new, park-like Pier 86, the complex boasts 30 restored aircraft, the former USS Growler submarine and the British Airways Concorde. 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.
