One of the best activities for kids in the city. The carrier is magnificent, full of naval and avionics displays that allow you hands on experience flying fighters, landing the shuttle and more. The Enterprise is glorious, we are truly blessed to stand so close to such an important tool to mankind. Where else can you step foot onto a submarine? The views of the city are spectacular and underrated, despite the modern architecture your mind is transported to days past as you stand on the deck of an aircraft carrier looking up at Midtown. Incredible experience, not to be missed.

I thought it was cool. Plenty to see and not super crowded on a Thursday in the summer. Good for a come couple hours if you have kiddos that like war history. I'd compare it to the naval museum in Norfolk Virginia with the battleship attached, but not necessarily like a Smithsonian. It is really awesome that the museum is INSIDE the air craft carrier. And the restrooms were pretty clean. Best ages for this are probably upper elementary to younger teenagers.

It's been a long time since I've come to this museum ... and has seriously been updated to be much nicer than it used to be. Very comfortable inside even on a super hot sunny day. My kids loved seeing the space shuttle on the deck above. I personally loved seeing the SR-71. Interactive exhibits inside the ship are perfect for my kids. Don't forget to visit the submarine next door! It's included in your admission! It's small but definitely worth the look.

Great experience. I am ex Royal Air Force and still love anything aviation.... the staff are brilliant here and very well informed with the subject matter of the exhibits. I could stay for hours if my family allowed it just listening to the tales they have of the active service fay's of the carrier and its crew. The exhibits on the hangar and the flight deck are very well preserved and a must see. I particularly enjoyed seeing a Blackbird and Space Shuttle up close and personal.

This is a place you must visit. It is absolutely amazing and should be a priority for your visit to NYC. The staff is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about what they do. They are incredibly polite and helpful. They can offer all kinds of tips, hints, answers, and stories. The exhibits as well as the ship itself is well maintained and the volunteer restoration staff deserves all the praise they can get for maintaining the exhibits. On thing that should not be ignored nor forgotten is the history and legacy that is carried on, especially of those who have served abroad. I definitely plan on coming again to visit and enjoy this wonderful museum. Hopefully the Concorde and Submarine will be open by then
