Here you can visit a submarine, a huge ship and see a space shuttle. You can get inside everything but unfortunately not in Enterprise space shuttle. This was the only sad part of our visit.

Absolutely! I would recommend the Intrepid for anyone from 6 years of age or older. They even have sleepovers for Boy Scout groups.
