Totally free learning experience fir the whole family. What better way to learn about Naval Air history than to take a day and explore the museum. There are several interactive rides for a fee if you want to experience a ride on the wild side. Bring the kids for a lesson in history.

We very much enjoyed our visit to NAS Pensacola and will visit again. We stayed in the Navy Gateway Inn. The beach was great, the lighthouse visit was great, we ate breakfast at the Golf Club which pricey but ok. The people at the Gateway Inn were very nice and helpful. Thank you to them, and the staff who took... More

We visited the air museum on a Thursday morning. While there was a rather large crowd there, it is so huge there was plenty of room to move around without bumping into others. Make sure you bring a camera, especially if you enjoy military aircraft from past ages. Fantastic display of static a/c from WWI, WWII, Viet Nam, Korea, and... More

We drove almost 2 hours to visit the Pensacola Naval Air Station and I will not lie, I was concerned we were going to get there and be disappointed with the amount of things to see and do. I was so wrong. There was so much to see and do, I was amazed. My husband and father loved all different... More

So, as we were driving to see the sites, we made an impromptu decision to go check out the museum based on the highway signage. As we drove and drove.....and drove we had convinced ourselves that we would be disappointed after having to drive so far to get there. Talk about being REALLY WRONG. This was one of the coolest...

lots of history and very colorful. Nice to visit especially if you have/had someone serving " in the air." My husband got to see a plane like his father served on in WWII. I think, however, you really have to be into history and planes to really enjoy the outside bus tour. We think our 4 year old grandson would... More

I was stationed on Pensacola Naval Air Station for a couple of years. I have observed many changes since I was stationed there in 2000. It is the home of the Blue Angels...a must see either in show or practice. Every time I visit the Naval Air Museum... I am never bored...very pleased to see new displays. The last time... More

I could not understand the traffic jam I encountered as I approached the Air Base, only to learn that summer visitors were awaiting the practice flight of the Blue Angels. Mother nature intervened with a thunderstorm putting paid to the flying for the day but I had to return a second day to enjoy all the exhibits that are there... More

We decided to visit the Naval Air Museum at Pensacola (Home of the Blue Angels). This was a GREAT experience. Navy aircraft from all eras were on display as well as various aircraft carriers. Although the Angels were not practicing the day that we were there, you should check the practice schedule adn who knows, maybe you will get a... More
