The Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum is a museum in New York City located at Pier 86 on the West Side of Manhattan. The museum showcases the World War II aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, the submarine USS Growler, the destroyer USS Edson, and a Concorde supersonic airplane.

This location places the museum next to a cruise ship terminal. A diplomatic consulate of the People's Republic of China is located nearby.

The museum serves as a host for the annual Fleet Week events.



The museum opened in 1982 after Zachary Fisher succeeded in saving the Intrepid from being broken up, and after Fisher docked the ship at Pier 86. The Intrepid became a national historic landmark in 1986.
