Take a field trip to the moon, see the universe being created or search for other forms of intelligent life. Visit exhibits in the Hall of Planet Earth, Hall of the Universe, and Cosmic Pathway.

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex offers visitors exciting experiences in science, technology and history. With the aircraft carrier Intrepid as its primary base, the museum utilizes all levels of this great, restored vessel. Commissioned in 1943, the Intrepid helped defeat Japan in World War II and was later involved in picking up astronauts after they splashed down. Today you can walk its decks, view its extensive display of aircraft and get a feeling for what life was like on this floating city. In addition to the Intrepid, the museum features the Growler, a “top-secret” Navy submarine, and the Concorde, the fastest passenger jet in the world. This is a full sea, air and space experience.

NASA’s space shuttle prototype Enterprise arrived in the summer of 2012…

On December 11, 2011, a ceremony onboard the Intrepid marked the shuttle’s transfer of ownership to the aircraft museum. While the Enterprise was not launched into space, it was used for 16 approach and landing tests in the 1970’s, eight of which were manned by teams of NASA astronauts.

On April 23, 2012, the Enterprise was flown atop NASA’s shuttle carrier aircraft to New York’s JFK International Airport. During that summer, the shuttle was transported by barge to the Intrepid museum complex. At present, the Enterprise is displayed on the deck of the aircraft carrier.  Eventually, however, it will become part of new museum facility to be built across the street from the pier.
