Take the express route to the new National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City on a one-day hop-on-hop-off cruise through New York Harbor. Your hop-on hop-off ticket is valid for one day and includes timed admission to the 9/11 Museum,
My brother, father, and grandfather are all Navy men, so the opportunity to tour a nuclear submarine and an aircraft carrier was not to be missed. The museum guides are knowledgeable veterans, happy to answer any questions. They also have a British Airways Concorde, and the space shuttle endeavor. I have been to space camp and shuttle launches at Kennedy Space Center, but this was the closest I've ever been to the shuttle. Finally, they offer reciprocity with other science and technology museums, so the money I would have spent on admission, I was able to spend on gifts for my parents.
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.
We did "operation slumber" where you stay overnight on the ship. The cots were as uncomfortable as one might expect cots to be. Most of the staff didn't seem knowledgeable, but they were very friendly. The displays were informative and interactive, but could stand to be better maintained. Overall, we had a good time.
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.
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.
