Admission Tickets to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

Welcome Aboard!

Welcome aboard the USS Intrepid, anchored at Pier 86 in the Hudson River, proudly serving as a museum ship after more than 30 years of service as a US Navy aircraft carrier.

Now known as the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the ship served in the United States Navy from 1943 to 1974 and saw action in World War II, the Cold War, as well as the Vietnam War.

After its retirement, the USS Intrepid was converted into a museum and opened to the public in 1982. The ship is now permanently docked in the Hudson River in New York City, featuring exhibits on its own history and that of naval aviation in general.

Exhibits on the Intrepid

When you hear aircraft carrier, you think planes. And well, what can we say… You’re not going to be disappointed with the large collection of aircraft that are on permanent display, including vintage planes from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, as well as modern fighter jets and helicopters..

Certainly one of the coolest exhibits is the Space Shuttle Enterprise, located within its very own pavilion on the flight deck. The Enterprise was the first orbiter built for NASA’s Space Shuttle program and now resides within the Space Shuttle Pavilion, which also includes more exhibits on the history of space exploration and the role of the Space Shuttle program.
