Our visit to the Intrepid was awesome. We were fortunate enough to have a knowledgable guide who had served on the Intrepid in Viet Nam. The aircraft display was thorough and well planned. We saw over thirty planes from the history of the intrepid; wonderful!

Visited the Intrepid sea to see this old big ship and the old airplanes. It’s was a good experience. Also the enterprise. But I think the ticket is expensive.

As a former pilot this place was something of a pilgrimage. An aircraft carrier, the shuttle Enterprise, Concorde, the A12/SR71 plus many more notable aircraft. these alone would have been worth the visit. if you have even a passing interest in aviation, the Navy etc...More

Absolutely! I would recommend the Intrepid for anyone from 6 years of age or older. They even have sleepovers for Boy Scout groups.
