Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum
Category: Tourist attractions
It is located in a tourist area, next to a cruise ship terminal, the Circle Line pier, and near the New York consulate of the People's Republic of China and a heliport. The Intrepid is also host to OSO Manhattan, a USMC recruiting station.
The museum serves as a hub for the annual Fleet Week events. Visiting warships dock at the cruise ship terminals to the north, and events are held on the museum grounds and the deck of the Intrepid.
The museum opened in 1982 after Zachary Fisher succeeded in saving the Intrepid from being broken up in 1974, and after Fisher docked the ship at Pier 86. The Intrepid became a national historic landmark in 1986.
