Its very overpriced, it shouldn't be so expensive. Huge lines on parts of the ship keeps you from seeing the best parts. And the walls and divisions put up in the hanger totally kills the feeling that you are inside a carrier. And what would be the coolest part, visiting a space shuttle, is just a display. You can't visit any part of it, not even glance ox what the inside looks like. Disappointing. There are some cool aircraft on display, but that's it.
This museum is a must see. It tells the history of WWII , Vietnam, and the space race, and they have a submarine. Both decommissioned Navy vessels have permanently stored in the harbor, and made so you can your. The intrepid ship is easy to board via gangways with elevators. You can also ride the plane elevator between floors of the ship at certain times of day. An awesome three minutes lead by retired former service men. My guys name was Allen, and he served in Vietnam. Be sure to ask tons of questions to the volunteers, they are all super nice and can tell you interesting facts about both the ship and what service life was like for them. They also have an interactive exhibition for the children, and adults where you get to try you hands at some hands on learning. I was totally unsuccessful in landing the space shuttle, but I was great at doing tasks with space gloves! Definitely check out this museum, it's about 30 bucks a person, I think kids under 5 or 6 are free. But if in NYC the Intrepid is always a great stop, for an amazing day.
Great place, very big to get around and plenty to see. Definitely worth a visit so much to learn. Great selection of planes and helicopters to learn about, each one has a bit of history and data about them. In the main display there is a kamikaze theater recreation, giving an sense of what it would be like to live through these horrific attacks. Giving first person accounts of what occurred and how the attacks were handled. The best part for me wasn't even the reason I went there and that was the submarine growler. I would advise anyone going here to see this if you can, there are mobility and height restrictions as it's a submarine and hasn't been made 'tourist friendly'. The initial tour guide was fantastic, he served on a sister ship to the growler and gave his first hand memories of what life was like on this class of submarine. After this you could walk through the submarine and take pictures etc. Be warned though it is narrow and you have to go single file. There is also a concorde here that you can pay more to tour around (I didn't) or you can walk around outside for free. Seeing the space shuttle is also worth the extra money, you can't go into the shuttle but you can view it from all sides and there is extensive information and displays about the missions. I would highly recommend anyone going to this museum if you are interested in history/space or the military. The best bit of advice I could give is when you first arrive look at the queue for the submarine, if there isn't one go there immediately otherwise you may end up waiting a long time to get in as they obviously have to limit the number of people entering at anyone time.
Very educational even for a Navy veteran. Good for kids, there are lots of educational aspects...especially over at the Space Shuttle exhibit. Quite a number of aircraft on display, although it was disappointing that Concorde was not open to walk through...but neither is Enterprise, probably because it's just a shell. Allow a lot of time, seeing everything can take up half a day easily.
I came here with probably too great of an expectation to explore the aircraft carrier, which I had been looking forward to seeing for months. When I got there, I realized just how limited touring of the ship is altogether. There are a few areas accessible, such as some sections of the "island" (command center), but for the most part it's limited to a few main areas, such as the flight deck and the hangar. The submarine, the USS Growler, is a much more interesting part of this museum and one I HIGHLY recommend seeing. It's a pre-nuclear submarine that was in service during the the later 50s into the early 60s. Here you can actually explore thoroughly the front of the submarine to the back of it. Sections of the submarine are cordoned off, but you can still see around it to get a glimpse inside and offers one a much richer experience than the aircraft carrier does. Another main attraction of this museum is the space shuttle Enterprise. Enterprise never went into space, but the history behind it is still neat nonetheless with the cast of Star Trek (TOS era) posing in front of it at one point. It was something I wanted to see when coming to this museum, but I found myself much more fascinated with the history and sight seeing of the USS Growler than anything else the museum offered. All around, this isn't a bad sight seeing place to go, but be aware that access is limited and the best attraction is likely to be the USS Growler than anything else.
