The museum was opened in 1982 at Pier 86 by Zachary Fisher, a prominent New York real estate developer and philanthropist, and journalist Michael Stern who managed to salvage the Intrepid from scrap metal in 1978. The USS Intrepid became a National Historic Landmark in 1986.

Aircraft Carrier Intrepid

Launched in 1943, the aircraft carrier Intrepid fought in World War II, surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo hit. The ship later served in the Cold War and the Vietnam War. Intrepid also served as a NASA recovery craft in the 1960s.
More than 50,000 men served on the Intrepid during the ship’s service, and more than 250 men made the ultimate sacrifice. The Intrepid was decommissioned in 1974. Today, the Intrepid is moored in the Hudson River as the centerpiece of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Space Shuttle Pavilion

The Space Shuttle Pavilion showcases the space shuttle Enterprise, NASA’s prototype orbital aircraft that paved the way for the space shuttle program. Seventeen dynamic exhibition zones feature original artifacts, photographs, sound and film that immerse visitors in the science and history of Enterprise and the space shuttle era.

Submarine Growler

The former USS Growler first opened at the Intrepid Museum in 1989 and is the only US guided missile submarine open to the public. The Growler offers museum visitors a first-hand look at what life is like on a submarine and a close-up inspection of the once “top secret” missile command center. Access is available to the various compartments as they were used during operation.

British Airways Concorde

The fastest Atlantic crossing by any Concorde took place on February 7, 1996 and lasted just 2 hours, 52 minutes and 59 seconds. This record-breaking plane – the Concorde Alpha Delta G-BOAD – is yours to explore at the Intrepid Museum complex at Pier 86.
