Description :

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 at Pier 86 after Zachary Fisher, a prominent New York real estate developer and philanthropist, succeeded in saving the Intrepid from the scrap heap in 1978.After being closed for a lengthy renovation, the museum reopened to the public on Nov 8th 2008.
