Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum

This 'floating' museum is located on the Hudson River waterfront and is housed in an heroic World War II and Vietnam War veteran, the aircraft carrier Intrepid.

The ship was decommissioned in 1974, but it still resounds with historic atmosphere, reinforced by its tour guides, many of whom are ex-servicemen.

The ship carries a number of changing exhibitions, which cover aspects of aviation, military, marine and space exploration history.

Its exciting permanent exhibits feature a guided missile submarine - the Growler, and an A-12 Blackbird - the world's fastest spy plane. More recent additions include a number of Iraqi tanks captured during the Gulf War.
