The museum was cram packed with so many aircraft it was cool to see, plus it was free the highlight for me was the blue angels doing their training while I was on the base. Traffic headed in can be very slow moving so plan for that

Went to the museum on the base but picked a day when the Blue Angels practice. From March to November they practice every Tuesday and Wednesday morning at the Pensacola base. The museum was great, very interesting. Different topics and a lot of different aircraft from different times. The highlight was to go out to the runway and watch the... More

We have been here many times and continue to come back! The museum is free and our 2.5 year old loves it. There is so much history and so many great planes, helicopters spacecraft etc. to see. If you can make it to a Blue Angels practice while you are there I highly recommend it! This really is one of... More

It's a nice way to spend the day. There are several things to visit where in the Naval Air Station. There are beaches, a light house, a museum, and the Blue Angles if your are there when they are practicing. It's a beautiful drive around the Naval Air Station also.

Always a good time. Perfect place to take visitors from out of town. They have expanded and is cooler than ever. Must check out the IMAX and flight simulators.

The Museum is incredible. A must see when in Pensacola. There are so many airplanes that have been restored. It is humbling to walk through the museum, I am thankful for all the service men and woman!

I had been living near the Pensacola Air Station forty years ago, when the museum was barely there. I was anxiously excited to see how it was doing. We were there at 9am, when it opened, and were greeted by many volunteers and veterines, so much to see and do. People of all ages. So many planes of all types.... More

This base is surrounded by National Park and beaches. The grounds are covered with historic landmarks, houses and museums. Additionally, what has to be one of the prettiest golf courses in the south, is smack dab in the middle of the whole thing. Go out of your way to visit this spectacular facility.

The gate staff here plainly suck. Here for a month long course and all I can say is the gates to the NAS and Corry Station are magnificent. How do I know this? Because of the inept fate guards this is where I spent a majority of my tdy. The line to get on NASP can be 2 miles long,... More
