My first visit to the Naval Aviation Museum was a real thrill! I had been wanting to visit Pensacola, the museum, and a Blue Angels practive for years, and finally made it a priority. . Luckily, it was a perfect Spring morning on the naval base for the BA's to fly. Words can't describe how awesome the maneuvers were, and... More

We love museums so we did 2 days but even if your not that much into museums , you will spend a good part if the day here if you also see the blue angels practice flight. It's a lot to take in but also interactive for kids. They have so many planes that are the real McCoy and you... More

This museum has so much to see that you could spend an entire day here. We rode the flight simulator (fee to ride) and it was so much fun. We did the self guided tour, walking around all the exhibits. You get up close to so many of the aircraft. Unfortunately, the Blue Angels cancelled practice due to high winds... More

Great exhibits and displays set up in two huge buildings will keep you busy enjoying aviation history for hours. Free admission, public restrooms, great parking and professional friendly staff. They had such an awesome display of planes from WWI, WWII, Vietnam to present day. The Apollo section was very interesting to me as my grandfather worked for NASA, finally got... More

If you are into airplanes, ships, and history this is for you. They have guided tours that will give info on what you are seeing buy you can also go it alone which a lot of people do. It is a lot of walking but fun and informative.

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!
