It's hard to think of a more appropriate place to host the Sea, Air & Space Museum than the USS Intrepid. Launched in 1943, the former aircraft carrier survived 5 kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. Besides its service to the armed forces it also served as a NASA recovery vessel. The Intrepid was decommisioned in 1974 and today is the centerpiece of the Museum. Another exhibit you'll see is the Space Shuttle Pavillion. It showcases the space shuttle Enterprise, the prototype NASA orbiter that paved the way for the space shuttle program. Up next is the USS Growler. The Growler is the only American guided missile submarine open to the public. Get a firsthand look at life aboard a submarine and a look at the once "Top Secret" missile command center. While visiting the museum you will get to examine original artifacts, view historic video footage and explore interactive exhibits.
