Tons of planes.....FREE! The kids loved it! I only wish we would have had more time......we wanted to tour the lighthouse and other museums on the base.

my son stationed here so stopped by. This is a very neat base. Of course, it is clean and uncluttered. Only had a couple of days and a few hours on base with son. Some regrets include not staying on the base, not going to the lighthouse (it was raining), and not going to the museum (ran out of time).... More

Take the climb up the lighthouse for a fantastic 360 degree panoramic view of the bay and naval base.

The practice session for the Blue Angels is not to be missed. Check out the website for the NAS to check practice times. Arrive early and take lots of sunscreen and enjoy the show. The Blue Angels practice right over your head and it is incredibly awesome. After the 20 minute show, be sure to spend at least 2 hrs... More

I have visited the Naval Air Museum numerous times. The first when my daughter was 7 and the last when her child was 4. Three generations. This place is just awesome. To think that you can see this for free is just unbelievable. The aircraft, the displays, the volunteers that work there are all top notch. If you are anywhere... More

We have visited the NAS several times over the past 20 years, and still enjoy the experience every time! The displays are plentiful, most staff are passionate and friendly...and you might even get to see some flyovers during your visit. We did do 2 new things this visit: a free trolley tour and lunch at the cafe. Trolley tickets are... More

Very cool to see the planes our US navy uses past and present. The museum is free which is an added bonus! We got in the 4D blue Angel simulator which was a paid attraction. There's no way I could pilot one of those things especially with G-Force added! There is a cafe and a bar on site, as well... More

It's free, it's easy to find, it's beautifully laid-out and well-stocked. The historical and scientific explanations are interesting and easy to understand. I wasn't keen to go but am glad my husband persuaded me.

For years I have taken anybody from out of town who is interested in Naval history or anything to do with planes to NAS Pensacola. Not only is the museum fantastic, the grounds themselves are incredible. There is a wonderful lighthouse to be climbed, a military cemetery that is awe inspiring, beautiful nature trails, old historical hangers and buildings. NAS... More

One of the best military airplane museums I have gone to. For it to be free there is so much for all ages to see and enjoy.
