Having grown up in Pensacola, and, having been in the military for 20+ years, it's great to get old home memories set on a world stage. Just check it out.

We visited the museum on a Sunday, and it was not crowded. The museum is clean, huge, and lots of different planes to see. Eatery on site. IMAX theatre with different times and shows. Lots to see and learn. Kids really enjoyed the planes. We took the trolley out the field to see old planes. It was kind of boring... More

This is one of Randy's favorite places to visit. The kids love it to because there is an indoor playground for them.

This museum was fabulous. Home of the Blue Angels. There were many life size aircraft to view plus models of carriers. We also took the bus trip outside to view the various aircraft. Our driver was knowledgable about the aircraft and we learned a lot. It is definitely worth your time.

When I heard this was one of Pensacola's best attractions, I was a little skeptical, not being at all interested in Naval history or aviation. This museum, however, is wonderful. It has tons of planes and exhibits for naval aviation buffs, but also plenty of attractions a little more accessible for people like me - re-creations of Pensacola during WWII... More

This was one of the most incredible aircraft museums I have every visited. When I learned the Blue Angels practice in the back, I reworked my schedule so I could come and watch and am glad I did. They were just amazing.

We went there early morning and saw most of the displays ... I'd like to go back and do the rides and the cinamax stuff ... I was in the navy back in the 1960's ... a trip down memory lane for sure if you were a swabbie ... they even have a Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club display ... WOW
