Since 1982, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum has become an icon for New York City and America. We are dedicated to building awareness and understanding of history, science, and service through our collections, exhibitions and our public and educational programs. Our mission is to honor our heroes, educate the public and inspire our youth.
Launched in 1943, the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid and her crew served tours of duty through World War II and Vietnam, surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. It also served as a NASA astronaut recovery vessel before being retired in 1974. Now the Intrepid serves as a showcase for past, present and future sea, air and space innovations, including authentically restored aircraft, the submarine Growler, British Airways Concorde and reopening in early summer 2013 — the Space Shuttle Pavilion that is centered around the Space Shuttle Enterprise.
