Rated in the top 25 museums in the United States, the Naval Aviation Museum in not to be missed. Something for everyone: flight simulators, I Max films, fabulous exhibits, fascinating history, a great gift shop and cafe and the Blue Angels. Don't come to Pensacola without seeing this wonderful museum.

So interesting for all ages....I especially liked the model of the USS Essex aircraft carrier my dad was on during the Korean war. It's free parking and free admission....doesn't get any better than that and the place is clean. We are seniors and the exhibits brought back many memories...we sent pics from our phones to our grandchildren who wished they... More

Must see Military Museum when friends and family visit. The permanent and new exhibits are displayed with honor and their place in our history is well documented. Volunteer Guides are available for questions or you may follow along with small groups they lead. The I Max theatre offers several features.

We took our son and grandkids and everyone (all ages) were just blown away at the ships and planes through the generations and different wars. The movies and simulator rides are amazing. Need a few visits to see it all. the staff are very helpful and informative.

This is SO worthwhile to visit ... Even though admission is free (and there is plenty to do and see for that) - spend some money on the movies and rides and support the museum. We did everything - all the IMAX movies - LOVED the Rocky Mountain Train movie and the DDay movie ....go see the Blue Angel movie... More

This is a first class military air museum. Magnificently captures the history of naval air with wonderfully restored aircraft, each with its own history recorded and shared. Guides throughout the museum were most helpful and informative. Relocated bar from Cubi Point PI is a fun place to have lunch and relive past glories. Worth a drive from across the Florida... More

No mater where you are spending time in Panhandle this is a must. Not even true aeronautic buffs we figured we'd stop for a couple hours. You can easily spend a full day and not even scratch what is to be seen. So many historical planes, amazing exhibit presentations and interactive areas. We'll be back because we spent more time...

The first time we were lucky enough to "happen" on this museum was a fluke. We couldn't check in to our next hotel for several hours, and needed something to do. We went to this "museum" (well, okay for a bit of time) and WOW"!!! And WOW!!! again. If you step in the door and are not "moved" in some... More

You can spend anywhere from a few hours to a full day here. It has something for everyone. Be sure to try the new aircraft carriers simulator, very cool. If you want you can also try the Blue Angel simulators but it will cost you. Lots of history too.
