It was amazing to see and a very educational visit. The size of the ship, submarine and plans are much bigger in person.

Hi, Nancy. What would you like to know about this attraction? We were planning on bringing our grandsons down to see the Intrepid because their great grandfather served on this ship during WWII. Unfortunately the 9 year old broke his foot and is now in a walking cast. I was wondering if you have wheel chairs available for rent in case he needs to get off his foot
