Wow!!!! What a museum!!! The number of aircraft was enormous. Such a great variety. Displays are set up throughout the museum--informative. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and friendly. Tours are available in the museum, and a trolley tour of the Flight Line is also available. An IMAX Theater is on the premises with several showings scheduled. There are several simulator... More

I am partial to military museums due to my affiliation with the military but I do have to say that this is a great museum, but What is even better is the flightline tour they offer to see some of the older planes on the ramp near the hanger. Make time to do the your because it is well worth... More

This was a great museum right on the “Home of the Blue Angels” Pensacola Naval Air Station. The History was phenomenal. Admission is free and if you want additional entertainment they charge accordantly. It was a great experience!

My husband and I visited the museum about two hours before closing. There is so much to see that one could spend an entire day here. Guided tours were offered but unfortunately we missed them. This is the place for all aviation buffs. The museum layout bears some resemblance to the Marine Corps National Museum in Virginia. If you visit,... More

We drove over from Gulf Shores just to visit the museum, and we were not disappointed. The number of aircraft was huge, and the docents were very knowledgeable. The bus tour of the outside aircraft was informative. This place is well worth the time to tour. And it is all free!

Located on NAS Pensacola, this museum is second to none! An absolutely incredible amount of military aircraft in amazing condition. Definitely plan to spend a minimum of 2-3 hours here and possibly more if you really want to take your time. A cool little play area for kids is available should you need to break it up with little ones.... More

Coming from a Boeing family I have seen my fair share of aircraft and flight museums. The displays here are spectacular and I love that they incorporate so much more than just aircraft, like the section on space craft. The one thing that kept driving me crazy is a lot of the aircraft don't have any signage telling you what... More
