Today I visit Intrepid Sea,Air&Space Museum with my friends. The tour is amazing! Actually I didn’t expect too much at first because of the bad customer experience in my previous museum tour. This gigantic museum really gives me a big surprise! I think this should be one of the must visiting place in NY.
You can actually board the authentic aircraft carrier and submarine, then explore inside! It is super clean and filled with history cool stuff which are all kept in their vintage pristine condition. Plenty of pictures,videos and exhibits to read and experience. If you have any questions, the friendly helpful staff will help you. And on the deck of the aircraft carrier, there are a large collection of battle planes such as F15,F16,Migs. So many awesome stuff that drives you to another world which is completely different from the crazy Manhattan. It is necessary to wirte down this enjoryable educational tour and wonderful place.
Intrepid Sea,Air&Space Museum consists of four parts, that is also why it carries this unwieldy long name:
- Intrepid aircraft carrier (Intrepid)
- Authentic military aircraft (Air)
- U.S. submarine Growler (Sea)
- Space Shuttle Pavilion (Space)
The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is the only museum where visitors can explore a legendary aircraft carrier, the first space shuttle, the world’s fastest jets and a guided missile submarine. We thrill visitors of all ages and connect them to history through hands-on exploration, stories of heroism and firsthand accounts of the people who were there. As New York City’s only educational institution housed on an aircraft carrier, we’re advancing innovation by developing the next generation of leaders in science, technology engineering and math.
