Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the best way to get there? The Intrepid is located on Manhattan’s far west side. The most direct way is taxiing up to Pier 86 at West 46th Street and Twelfth Avenue. You can also take the A, C, E subway line to 42nd Street/Port Authority and then walk to Twelfth Avenue, which takes about 10 minutes.

Can I take a tour? You can. The museum offers several, including an hourlong jaunt through the aircraft carrier’s history and another that chronicles the space program.

Sounds cool, but are there flight simulators? Yes. You might want to test your skills in GForce Encounter, which simulates the experience of flying a supersonic jet.

Is there anywhere to eat? Options are limited within the museum, but the surrounding neighborhood, Hell’s Kitchen, is filled with excellent restaurants.
