FLEET WEEK 2016

Celebrate Fleet Week at the Intrepid Museum! Join us for a special lineup of programs, performances and interactive displays as we honor our service men and women.

Watch the parade of arriving ships, and explore the U.S. Naval Academy Yard Patrol Craft that will dock at our pier. Catch a free screening of Top Gun on the flight deck, kicking off our Summer Movie Series. Over the weekend, discover an array of hands-on activities offered by various military partners on the pier, and enjoy World War II–era music performed by live bands.

And don’t miss an evening of music and swing dancing on the flight deck on Saturday, May 28. Three of New York City’s best big bands will battle it out—James Langton's New York All-Star Big Band, the George Gee Swing Orchestra and Gordon Webster Big Band. There will also be a vintage fashion show and contest, a 1940s photo booth and more! Tickets on sale soon.

All U.S. military and U.S. veterans receive free admission to the Museum generously provided by Bank of America. Purchase Tickets

Activities on the pier are free to the public.
