This place has an incredible number of planes, helicopters, and exhibits. I appreciated all of the signage to explain what we were seeing. Our family group ranged in ages - infant to senior citizens. It is quite sobering and very educational. Exhibits inside were very well-done.

There are lots of bombs and rockets inside the building. But outside are planes and more planes. A B-52 next to an SR-71 next to a B-25 & B-17. F-15, F-4 and more. There's a good movie about Eglin inside.

The museum is a must do if you are an airplan nerd and you need to see some interesting planes e.g. the SR-71 or a Herc Spectre. Inside there is also different weapons that are interesting.

Stopped by not knowing what to expect. After more than two hours we were amazed at the history, the artifacts, the planes and the cost (FREE). Would strongly recommend any one to stop in for this visit as it is a great overview of a critical part of our nation's defense and our Air Force team.

Worth a stop. Guns and bombs and aircraft from the history of the USAF. If you're in the area of Pensacola, you must see the Naval Museum.

Even if you are not a huge fan of weapons, this is a pretty decent museum and you can't beat the price! (free) Lots of interesting war history here and a lot of old rifles and pistols on display.

The armament museum is not by any means perfect, however it gives an insight on the military and is a great place for the family, I myself loved it, and the warhead in the front pf the museum was really awesome to go up and see, the planes and jets give you a feeling of what it must be like...

We were only able to view the outdoor portion of the museum due to the indoor portion was closed for MLK holiday. Being on vacation you tend to forget those things. We all enjoyed the displays and I would recommend this museum to anyone.
