I wish there was a place like this when I was a kid. What's more exciting than touching a real life space shuttle? Watch out, you might regress into that crazy excited 10 year old and push your own kid out the way just to get a glimpse of a submarine!! AHHHH!!!!

Where else can you see submarines, aircraft, AND a space shuttle all in one day? (Pretty much nowhere.) Admission can be steep, but kids -- and, seriously, adults too -- will be in awe at the machinery on display here. If you go on a nice day, pack a picnic lunch to eat in the Hudson River Park.

Great idea for an afternoon trip – Been living in Manhattan for years and finally checked out the Intrepid. It is so unique and historically interesting I can't believe I've never seen it before. I imagine on a great spring/summer day it will be great to go there and then meander along the westside parkway.

Great trip, but closed right now – The Intrepid museum is undergoing extensive renovations at this time (March 2007). The aircraft carrier, frigate and submarine, plus all other supporting artifacts of the museum, have been reloated for overhauling at a shipyard several miles away. There is no museum services being offered.

Look for the Intrepid's return around the mid to end 2008. SHould be magnificent!

A rare opportunity for aeronautics enthusiasts – Specially to foreign visitors, the Intrepid offers an opportunity to see some of the remarkable pieces of technology employed by the US armed forces, including speed masters such as the A-12 Blackbird and Concorde. For those who love aeronautics, it is just the place to get to know and take nice pictures some of the world's most famous combat aircrafts.

This aircraft carrier boasts a colorful history and draws tourists and native New Yorkers. – In Short
The USS Intrepid was commissioned in 1943. The ship took part in the Battle of Leyte Gulf and the Pacific Campaign of World War II, suffering seven bomb attacks, five kamikaze strikes and one torpedo hit which earned it a reputation among the enemy as "The Ghost Ship." After the war, the Intrepid began accommodating jet aircraft and served as a recovery vessel for NASA, as well as a submarine-tracking ship during the Cold War.

Bring a Camera – A bit pricey, but overall a good time was spent walking around the Intrepid, the Edson (Destroyer) and the Growler (Guided Missle Sub). Lots of exhibits can be seen below deck. Like most places in NYC, the souvineer's were too expensive to consider buying, but pictures are free, so take as much as you like.

an A for a sea museum – The Intrepid is one of the coolest museums I've ever visited. Any place that makes me feel like a kid again gets a 10! You're actually walking through a battleship. It's easy to navigate, thought provoking, great for kids, and not too crowded. The views are amazing, too. The McDonalds is a major eyesore.

Vets get cheated... – The museum is a must see for all Americans, but I was shocked to find that veterans and reservists (of which I am neither) have to pay to get in. Not only that, but they must pay $9 while teachers only pay $5!! The least the curators could do is let veterans in for free. Their presence alone would add immeasurably to the experience.
