Intrepid:
New York, NY

USS Intrepid , also known as The Fighting “I”, was  built during World War II. It was commissioned in August 1943 for the United States Navy. The Intrepid has one of the most distinguished service records of any Navy ship. She fought in WWII, the Vietnam War and served on various missions mainly in the Atlantic Ocean. She was decommissioned on March 15, 1974. In 1982, Intrepid was converted to the foundation of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City.

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum welcomes over one million visitors a year. The museum features the huge Intrepid Aircraft Carrier with 28 authentically restored aircrafts. The Lockheed A-12 Blackbird, the world’s fastest military jet and spy plane is on display as well as the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean.  The space shuttle Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle that paved the way for America’s successful Space Shuttle Program, is also a popular exhibition which took home in the museum in July of 2012.

There is also a guided missile submarine at the Intrepid Museum.  A tour of the ship will take you through lessons in history where you will learn about American innovation and bravery up close.
