I tried several times to visit this museum while in Pensacola because they have one specific painting in their inventory that I would like to have seen. After two years of being told at the cashier desk that they have special exhibits on display and that it isn't on display, I gave up. I am sure that it is a... More

This art museum is in a converted jail. They have metal bar doors and some nice brickwork. The wooden floor looks really nice as well. The downside is that this building is pretty small and that it is hard to have a lot of works on display. What they had was nice but unless you are a big time art... More

My 5 year-old is obsessed with Legos. Imagine our surprise as we were driving through town during our trip to Pensacola and saw the sign for this exhibit! The exhibit itself was amazing...such a talented artist! I was disappointed with one aspect: we have a NARM membership (North American Reciprocal Museum Association) which allows us to get into reciprocal museums... More

My 14 year old son had wanted to see the Lego exhibit. The exhibit was good. The museum was clean but sparse on art. I don't feel like it was worth $12 per person. I would not recommend this to anyone visiting Pensacola. I've lived here for 25 years and probably will not return.

Happened upon a sculpture showing and paintings all made from Leggo toys...From full scale human figures to a portrait of Andy Warhol, we can all be annoyed at ourselves for not using our Leggos in such a clever way....

We paid $12 each to see what we heard was a great place only to see that there was very little to see. There were two connecting rooms with pictures of trees and such on the walls, and two connecting rooms with the leggo displays. We feel ripped off and will not be going back.

Expected a bet more, since I was from northwest, I wanted some history, not just WW I and 2 posters, could find no explanation for it being an old jail.

I liked learning about the political cartoonist from France, 1800's. I did not like the accessibility of the building.

Free admission on Tuesday. Very small museum with a small permanent collection. Interesting depending on the current exhibit.

For a small city, this museum outdoes itself, and has excellent educational and cross-cultural programs.
