Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
One of the least expected museums in New York City is the one that floats on Pier 86: The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. If you’ve never set foot on this impressive aircraft carrier-based museum before, move it to your bucket list immediately. Founded in 1982, the museum takes guests on an interactive journey through history to learn about American innovation and bravery. The Intrepid Museum includes the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle, and 27 authentically restored aircraft.
