This museum is just amazing. I have visited the museum several times over the past few years. I plan on making many more visits. The exhibits are interesting and very detailed. Great for families with children. There is no admission, but donations help keep the museum updated.

Home of the Blue Angels. They have a 4 plane formation suspended overhead as just one of many awesome displays. Its free so price can't be beat. The staff consists of many retired pilots so chat with them and be amazed. The outside tour is via a trolley bus and the driver is non stop facts with a very southern... More

Took our entire family reunion group here one day, not certain the younger boys would enjoy it. Everyone had a blast and was entertained and amazed at the display of aircraft and settings. This is one of the Souths best kept secrets....and its FREE. Don't pass this one up!

It must be noted, I have been to the other museum in Dayton Ohio and it was AMAZING....even though you can't touch the planes. This museum is good but perhaps I was expecting what I saw in Dayton and the Pensacola museum doesn't come close... it's neat but, dang, you need to see the one in Dayton Ohio...trust me... CS

If you like airplanes you will like this place. Nice buildings, nice displays. Plenty to look at. Bring snacks, there is a restaurant on site but it gets pretty crowded at lunchtime, so if you're traveling with kids that can't wait to eat pack your own lunch.

We visited the Aviation Museum in March of 2014. We were only able to stay about 3-4 hours, but found that enough time to enjoy our visit. I wish I could remember our tour guide's name because he was really exceptional. Very interesting and well worth a visit!

This is a world class museum. Highlights for us: 1. The ability to reach out and touch many of the exhibits. Even possible to sit in the cockpit of a retired fighter jet. 2. Apollo exhibits to include the lunar landing module and rover. 3. 4d IMAX experience flying with the Blue Angels. 4. Vintage uniforms, patches by unit type,... More

We save the museum for rainy days when it's too cold on the beach. So much history and wonderful planes--it gives the Smithsonian Air and Space a run for its money.

Visited on a Sunday, not too crowded. Kids were entertained the entire time. Very entertaining and informative museum with lots of hands on exhibits.
