The highlight for me was the B-52 bomber and SR-71 Blackbird sitting side by side. The outstanding exterior display of fighter aircraft, bombers, helicopters, missiles, bombs and equipment was followed by an indoor tour including a great rifle and machine gun display and a P-51 Mustang, I think one of the most beautiful aircraft ever built, and it is all...

Have visited numerous AF and military museums and this one is pretty darn good. Inside is kind of small, but does have great displays and information on the various ordinances displayed throughout. The outdoor airpark is great, a great deal of unique aircraft not found at many of the other museums I've visited. Overall its worth the 1-2hrs you'll spend... More

Had visited the Naval Air Museum years ago near Pensacola and this is another fine military museum. Well laid out with great signage throughout the building. There was also a film to show the history of Eglin Air Force base that was very good. A great way to spend several hours!

Are you a fan of military history? If you are, then an attraction to add to your list of places to visit in the Florida panhandle is the Air Force Armament Museum.

Very nice outdoor display of some really neat aircraft and although small, an excellent indoor Museum. Very interesting and well worth an hour or two.

There are a lot of killing machines on view at this, free museum. Outside, an array of aircraft are on display. The outside exhibits are available, even when the museum building is closed. There are bombers and jet fighters, along with several experimental aircraft. It all made me wonder why we need so many, different, fighter aircraft. I think this... More

A great side destination for a couple of hours. The actual museum itself is kind of small, essentially a small hangar, but it is absolutely STUFFED with all manner of bombs, missiles and airborne firepower...and even a couple of planes, all depicting the whole range of delivery systems and ordnance from tiny sensors to the 'Fatman' atomic bomb. Much of... More

This museum was such a pleasant surprise. This was my first time and i was wonderfully delighted to get such up close views of MANY aircrafts from WWII era. I loved the air and space museum in DC but this one in Fort Walton is even better because you can practically go underneath the aircraft to look at the details.... More

A free attraction that is worth the look and a great way to spend a rainy day in Pensacola. While visiting, why not check out the practice schedule for the Blue Angels.
