Located on the Hudson River, the Intrepid Museum was founded in 1982 with the acquisition of the USS Intrepid, a National Historic Landmark. The Intrepid Museum engages the public in learning about American history, and the science and technology of aviation, seagoing vessels and space exploration.
Welcoming one million visitors annually, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum includes the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle orbiter, which paved the way for America’s successful space shuttle program. On display are more than two dozen authentically restored aircraft, including the Lockheed A-12 Blackbird, the world’s fastest military jet and spy plane, and the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean. The Museum also includes the submarine Growler, the only American guided missile submarine open to the public; the Exploreum Interactive Hall, a fully interactive exhibit space; an 18,000-square-foot education center; and Pier 86, a publicly accessible pier that is part of the Hudson River Park.
As an educational and cultural nonprofit institution, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum promotes the awareness and understanding of history, science and service through its collections, exhibitions and programming in order to honor our heroes, educate the public and inspire our youth.
