I am from out of town, this is a must see when visiting. It's free and packed with lots of history. My daughter even enjoyed all the partial plane she could climb into and pretend

Stellar place. Loved the exhibits and the aircraft. It's also right by the lighthouse which is a bonus. Just be careful of the flight simulator if you are a dreadful pilot like my wife and me -- that goes upside down in a hurry.

Even though this was like being a kid in a candy shop for me (who loves planes, etc), this is a great museum to learn not only about Naval Aviation but aviation as a whole. Great displays of the planes from various eras both on the floor and in the air. Unlike a few similar museums we have gone to,... More

I missed the Blue Angels because I did not realize how close this attraction was to where I was staying in Alabama. Huge regret! There are a lot of aircraft here. I am not an aircraft buff, but I am a big history fanatic. I liked that there displays for all the wars, especially Vietnam. People often talk of the... More

This museum is on Pensacola Naval Air Station. It displays the history of flight. Many different aircraft are displayed. There are a few rides, an imax theatre, and lots more to see.

This place is not just for aviation buffs. It's a really fine 20th century American history museum as well. Docents are very knowledgeable. I bought a few really unique items at the gift shop . They were so popular at home I had to order more online!

Good display of planes. Much bigger and better than expected. Guided tours if you want them and all this is free, make sure to leave a donation

OK, I'm a British aviation enthusiast so I'm bound to be positive. It's an amazing collection of aircraft which always challenges my identification skills and grows each visit. By chance we were there on a Blue Angels training day so you're allowed to walk into the restoration/reserve collection area and watch the show.

So much to see. Save most of the day to see it all. Even more fun when you can go thru it by yourself and check out the things that interest you the most.
