I was surprised to see how awesome this place actually was. If you have boys this is a must! There is a huge LEGO ship when you get in to the museum, lots to look at and you get to to see the shuttle.

Super interesting museum, not only for fans of Navy and their airplanes. Very impressive is the SR71 "Blackbird" and the space shuttle. The conversations with the veterans were also fascinating. We'll be happy to do it again.

We went early, short lines and were able to move through quickly. Great history, we were mostly interested in the aircraft. It’s quite tight going through the upper deck/ bridge of the Intrepid-avoid crowded times if you do not like closed spaces.
