The museum is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. There are so many great exhibits that it is really difficult to see everything in one day. The volunteer tour guides add a lot to the experience by telling stories about the planes and their history. The Blue Angel Air Show practice on Tues and Wed mornings is a "must see".

Coming to Pensacola would be a complete failure if you do not go to the beach !! Beautiful blue water and white sandy beaches are the ticket for a perfect day. come see what we have available to us all year.

Was very impressed by the high quality museum which is free and well laid out. Kids were impressed by all the displays, but blown away by the Blue Angel Air Show Practice on Tues and Wed's behind the museum. Would recommend air plugs for the younger visitors as the turbine noise at full throttle is impressive, but loud due to... More

My wife and I went in March to the first open practice of the Blue Angels. There had to be over 25,000 people there. Super air show and it was free. The first weekend in November, they have their Homecoming show. This is a must sEE.

We went for the Blue Angels Show....which was excellent. The crowds were incredible and traffic was awful, but it was still worth the visit. Even with arriving late we still were able to move our way to the front area to see the show which lasted about 45 mins. Afterwards we enjoyed the wonderful Naval museum and had an opportunity...

We all had too much sun the day before and were looking for something inside and out of the sun to do. We were staying in Orange Beach, AL. This was only about a half hour drive for us. They have a lot of really neat planes. I just wish we could have gone on a Tuesday or Wednesday to... More

It's hard to believe in today's government that this would be available to the public for free. Just amazing! Staying in Gulf Shores we drove over to see the Blue Angels practice session. Travel time was just under an hour. You need to arrive an hour before the practice session as the bleachers fill up quickly. The practice session was... More

We were two of thousands going on the day we went - the Blue Angels were practicing! The Blue Angels were top but the museum was wonderful as well. It's short on bathrooms so if you're going on a busy day (like Blue Angel practice) be sure to stop to use the restrooms elsewhere first. Great museum!

An absolutely amazing collection of aviation history. While I enjoyed seeing airplanes from the time from the 1930s and earlier the kids loved the Blue Angels experience. Really and truly too much absorb in a single visit or a single day.

Took our 6 grandsons and they had a blast. Admission is free but they do accept donations and it is well work paying a couple of dollars to see the history.
