This place is amazing! The displays reach out to you (sometimes literally) to make you know had it felt to be there. You can get lost in the moment, and before you know it, its time to close. thoroghly enjoyed this!

I'm no aviation buff... and I spent a complete 8 hours in this place, its awesome! IMAX Theater, full size dioramas of every US Conflict, the underwater exhibit was amazing... there is so much to see, you really need a full day. Also great activities for kids.

It will bring out the child in every adult male you bring their. They will climb in airplanes and ride on simulators like they're 10. The people were super friendly! It was really cool.

This is actually on the navy base in Pensacola so that was a cool starting point. I was fortunate enough to go along with a family member who is in the navy and he made a great tour guide. I honestly can't remember whether there was an entry fee but if there was, it was a pretty interesting place and... More

I was moved to tears walking thru this place, esp the POW exhibit. A MUST SEE for everyone! It might be a bit of a drive from Destin and other areas, but you should go!

There are a lot of aircraft to see and great exhibits. The new Hanger Bay One is an excellent addition. There is a free tour that takes one to the "parking lot" of aircraft waiting to be restored. Each aircraft has a story behind it. The driver is very knowledgeable of the history of these aircraft and takes his time... More

This absolutely free museum on the Navy base in Pensacola, FL is a world class attraction. Only at the Air and Space Museum in Washington can you see more about aviation history. It will take a whole day to see everything this free museum has to offer. Several Imax movies are optional for a nominal ticket price. Volunteer tour guides... More

Stopped by the museum on a recent trip to Gulf Shores, AL. Living in Dayton I have Air Force museum in my backyard and high expectations (AF museum is better than Smithsonian in my view) and the Naval Air museum is very good, albeit smaller than Air Force version. Free admission/parking and excellent exhibits. We chose a date the Blue... More
