Intrepid Air and Sea Museum

Intrepid Air Sea Museum

After being closed for a lengthy renovation, the museum reopened to the public on Nov 8th 2008.

The Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum is a museum in New York City located at Pier 86 on the West Side of Manhattan. The museum showcases the World War II aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, the submarine USS Growler, and a Concorde supersonic airplane.

It is located in a tourist area, next to a cruise ship terminal, the Circle Line pier, and near the New York consulate of the People’s Republic of China and a heliport. The Intrepid is also host to OSO Manhattan, a USMC recruiting station.

The museum serves as a hub for the annual Fleet Week events. Visiting warships dock at the cruise ship terminals to the north, and events are held on the museum grounds and the deck of the Intrepid.

History

The museum opened in 1982 after Zachary Fisher succeeded in saving the Intrepid from being broken up in 1974, and after Fisher docked the ship at Pier 86. The Intrepid became a national historic landmark in 1986.

In September 2001, the Intrepid served as temporary field headquarters for the FBI as it began its investigation of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks.

One of the most successful ships in US history, “The Intrepid” is now one of the most unique attractions in New York City.
Berthed on the mighty Hudson River in Manhattan, the Museum boasts educational exhibits and exciting events.
