I am not one for museums but this one held my interest all day, Didn't hurt that I served in the Navy during Nam, We spent 5 hours looking at the different displays. We did not get to take the 45 min outside trolley tour of planes nor do much of the interactive displays on the 2nd floor. Defiantly will... More

This is a MUST visit. It will take you approximately 4-hours to self-tour this huge 2-story air-conditioned building. You'll see hundreds of planes, old and new. This is the home of the famous Blue Angles too. You can sit in the cockpits to take family pictures. They also have a flight-simulator that you can pay to ride in.... kids and... More

Really neat experience. You can go back to the museum repeatedly and still see something new every time.

Some friends that live in Florida thought we would like the museum - we went on a random Wednesday morning and as we arrived the blue Angels took off on a training session, a truly amazing experience.

OMG...incredible (not a better word to describe it). However, be warned that if you're going on a Blue Angels practice day, leave early because it is a LONG LONG LONG line of people trying to get onto the base to see them.

A very good museum to visit but is quite a distance from the hotel. It's worth it if you like military history

This is a world class museum with historical aircraft that made history. They have so many significant exhibits that are worth seeing. The museum is a must see, but be prepared to spend several hours seeing everything.

Stationed at NAS Pensacola a very long time ago. Over the years we have visited NAS and the museum periodically, and have seen it grow and get better. It's probably one of the two best aviation museums in the country (the Air Force Museum in Dayton is probably the other one, of course). Visiting there brought back some memories, but... More
