I had seen the Intrepid many times while driving past it on my trips to New York, and was every time only slightly interested visiting it, but not more. It is a boat. Maybe one day, if I don’t have anything else to do. The...More

Excellent Display of Naval Aviation and History, with an aircraft carrier all rolled into one place. We had so much fun with all the interactive displays. Great for kids of all ages.

Go inside a WWII submarine, walk the decks of the aircraft carrier Intrepid, see the Space shuttle Endeavor and get up close to tons of fighter aircraft. You can easily spend 3-4 hrs here. Definitely worth seeing if you have children with you. The sub...More

This tour includes a tour of the only US submarine you can tour. The Space Shuttle in also included. Tour will take about 2-3 hours.

Had a great time here with the highlight for me being going aboard the Concorde on a guided tour. More to see than you would expect, and would recommend allowing up to 3 hours to see everything without rushing.

We were there early and in November so no lines at all, and not crowded inside. Would have expected more planes but it was ok. Well worth the time and money. Spent about two and a half hours there.

For the Concorde, you do have to pay extra for a tour. When I was there, there was a very long line to get through though there is no additional cost

They do offer free admission for U.S. military personnel and veterans. I neglected to mention that. There is also a reduced price for children under 12, and free admission for children under 4.

There are some elevators to get you to the main levels (hangar deck, flight deck, mess deck) but some of the island spaces necessitate a few stair (ladder) climbs.
