New York City Getaways
Built in 1943, the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid and her crew served tours of duty through World War II and Vietnam, making seven trips around the globe and surviving five kamikaze attacks, seven bomb attacks, and one torpedo strike. She then served as a NASA recovery vessel before being retired in 1974. Now Intrepid is berthed on the Hudson River as the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
Walk the 900-foot flight deck; climb through the hatches of the USS Growler submarine; tour the British Airways Concorde, the world's fastest commercial plane; and experience what it's like to be a pilot in the Virtual Flight Zone. Seasonal events aboard the Intrepid include Fleet Week, Firefighter and Police Appreciation Weekends, Kids Week, and more.
And don't miss the Kamikaze exhibit: Using state-of-the-art multi-screen and surround-sound technology, "Kamikaze: Day of Darkness, Day of Light" transports you back to the Intrepid as she was on that terrible day during World War II, immersing you in a second-by-second recreation of her most trying moments.
Kids Week (February 16-24) - The Intrepid Museum's annual Kids Week features organizations from around the area providing interactive activities for kids and families. Children learn about space and science through various art projects throughout the week.
