Centered on the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, the Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space museum is a floating treasure trove of exhibits for aviation enthusiasts.
The deck and hangar bay of the ship feature a collection of 30 aircraft, including some that have just recently left active service.
Additionally, one of the Concorde supersonic jets on loan from British Airways is on the Intrepid pier and can be explored inside and out by visitors — this aircraft holds the world speed record for a passenger jet and once made a sub-3-hour crossing between London and New York.
The museum also houses other interactive exhibits, including an A-6 cockpit simulator and a virtual flight zone.
It’s also right next to the New York Cruise Terminal, which is kind of fun if you like looking at big ships!
