Growler is subject to close one hour prior to the Museum closing.

Beginning July 1st, the Concorde will be temporarily relocated offsite for necessary maintenance. The experience and exhibit will re-open to the public in Spring 2024.

There are two dining facilities on the complex: one on the Mess Desk level of Intrepid (where the crew would dine) and one on the second level of our Welcome Center. For your convenience, we offer pre-arranged boxed lunches, which include a sandwich, beverage and snacks—please ask your Group Sales Representative for options and pricing.
