The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum showcases aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, submarine USS Growler, and various types of military fight jets. The gigantic aircraft carrier is parked by the shore and has become part of the beautiful scenery of the Hudson River. Among the exhibits, USS Growler is a submarine with missile firing capability that can be boarded by visitors. Its interior metal machinery, bridge, and missile inspection cabin are very interesting and worth a look.

The Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum is a very unique experience in that it is a museum inside a legendary aircraft carrier. At the museum you can view decommissioned planes, ships and other aircrafts that are no longer in service. It was founded in 1982 and is situated along the coast of New York’s famous Hudson River. It is just a short walk away from Times Square so it is very convenient to get to. There are guided tours scheduled throughout the day which are very informative, giving you history on all the amazing vehicles on display at the museum, You also get to tour into the inner hull of the aircraft carrier and see interesting things like the controls, missiles and living quarters. Lastly one of the highlights of the tour is the concord that is on display, one of the world’s fastest planes ever flown. #historicculture #historicalbuilding #museumquest
Tee’s Favourite Things
After the soldiers retired, they will be forgotten. The fate of the warships is roughly two kinds. One is to be sunk on the battlefield, and the seabed is buried with infinite regret. The other is to bring the scars to the end of the war and retired. Even if the end of life is dead, most of the end of the life record can not escape the fate of being sent to the shipyard for dismantling. But there are still some warships that will have a much better result, which is to become a battleship museum for people to visit.
When I came to the Hudson River at Pier 85, the Intrepid aircraft carrier was like a giant beast. Before I came to New York, I really didnt know there was such a fascinating sight. As the world's few aircraft carriers to visit, the Intrepid is the biggest one. The
fearless aircraft carrier was launched for the first time on April 26, 1943. It was finally retired on March 15, 1974. It was awarded two naval collective awards and won five battle stars in World War II and Vietnam. Can be described as outstanding merits.
On March 15, 1974, the "Fearless" retired and was once ready to sell the dismantling, but with the efforts of civil society organizations, the Navy donated the "Intrepid" to New York City as a museum ship in 1981. In 1982, the "Fearless" was borrowed from the Navy. In the same year, the "Intrepid Sea and Air Museum" was officially opened to the public on the Hudson River. Since then, it has become an important landmark and tourist attraction in Manhattan.

Listen to the naval grandfather volunteers who have served in the service to explain the structure of various instruments, and the equipment has The history is fresh.
