You must come here if you are in the area. Very nice museum with a lot to see! The amount of aviation and naval history here is truly spectacular. Not to be missed.

What a great place to visit during our trip to Pensacola Beach. We have three boys and we all loved looking at all the planes. It was amazing on the collection of aircraft! Best of all, it is free (but we did make a good donation because it was so awesome). Would highly recommend visiting this museum. We had friends... More

An excellent trip through Naval Aviation History. Many informative and educational exhibits. You can take a guided tour or go on your own. Don't miss the replicas of the 40's Store and living room on the 2nd floor. Best of all, this wonderful museum is FREE, but please give a donation!

Fascinating place to visit if you like airplanes. Plan on at least a half day, especially if you want to do the simulator and attend IMAX!

This by far is one of the nicest and most interesting museums I have ever visited. It gets a bit crowded but it is very open. The airplanes are unreal - so cool. If you are in Pensacola you have to stop and see this!!! Thank you for your service Airmen and Airwomen!

Come on Wednesdays and see the museum and the Blue Angels. This is the best aviation museum I have visited - and I think I've seen most of them. Kids of all ages will love that most of the exhibits can be touched as well as seen. The trolley tour is also fun. And, there are other things to see... More

Can't leave this museum without tremendous pride for our country and amazement at the role aviation has played in our history! Activities for children, an incredible collection of vintage and modern aircraft and plenty of living history exhibits. The real aircraft carrier exhibit in the middle of the museum is a big hit for children of all ages!!

Kids and adults will love the history and actual planes, helicopters, etc. that you can actually get in and look inside! The biggest plus is that it is free! The only thing that really costs there is the simulator and IMAX movie, but they're only approximately $5 (and worth it as well). A must see in Pensacola!!

This is a great place to go with the family. Through the years I have gone a lot. I have a child tha loves going. Now, as an adult, she still likes it. It feels walking along so many things that are just a part ofvour military history...and a symbol of our freedom.
