All aboard: The Intrepid is ready to welcome back visitors.
Beginning Friday, Sept 25, New Yorkers can make their way to the aircraft carrier for a peek into our nation's maritime, military and space history.
“We appreciate everyone who has supported us during this difficult time and can’t wait to once again welcome visitors through our doors,” Intrepid Museum President Susan Marenoff-Zausner said in a statement. “In preparation for our reopening, the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, former crew members and visitors is always our number one priority."
Things will look a little different once the city, state and federal guidelines are taken into consideration: The family attraction will operate at 25 percent capacity, operate Wednesday–Sunday from 10am–5pm and only invite those with advanced, timed tickets to enter the museum. Unfortunately, this also means that interactive areas will not operate, including the Concorde, submarine Growler, Lutnick Theater, simulators, food service and gift shop. At this time tours, parties and museum sleepovers will not operate. However, there is still plenty to see and learn—you'll just have to snag tickets and explore the space for yourself.
We're anxious to make our way back to one of our favorite spots in NYC! If you're curious when other kids' museums are reopening, check out our coverage.
