You don't have to spend a dime and have a great time viewing some of the most exciting planes ever. There are acres inside airconditioned buildings and you will enjoy it all for no cost to you. Of course you can donate on the way out which makes it all possible. Being a Naval Aviator I did provide quite a... More

One of the best aviation museums in the US. Be sure to take the guided bus tour of the planes outside on the tarmac. Well worth it! The driver is a hoot. Check out their website before going if you are a real aviation nut. They have really good presentations and speakers, depending on their weekly schedule.

Visited here twice and enjoyed it both times. Hoped to see the Blue Angels practice last week but the weather didn't cooperate. Great museum if you love aviation & there's plenty for the kids to do. Highly recommended for a 1/2 day or more visit.

While visiting a family member stationed at NAS Pensacola a few days we toured the old Forts,The Lighthouse Museum, and then spent another full day at the Naval AIr Museum and couldn't get enough! The volunteer staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. The Historical Forts are well preserved and great to tour for history buffs like us. Took some great... More

This was a nostalgia tour for me, since it was 45 years ago that I reported here to begin flight training. Of course, many of the things I remember have been torn down or were destroyed by Hurricane Ivan. But, it still has a beautiful golf course, the Blue Angels (practice sessions Tuesday and Wednesday) and its more recent jewel,... More

This is a large military base that is home to the Blue Angels part of the year and a training facility for pilots as well as the electronics repair crews. There are some of the buildings from pre-World War II that have been beautifully maintained. Then there are the new training facilities that are current and contemporary. With prime real... More

We visited during the blue angels show and got to see them take off. My niece and nephew were impressed. All of the volunteers were helpful and knowledgeable. The new exhibits were cool and very eye catching. We had a lot off fun.

We drove from Ohio for the air show and decided to visit the lighthouse located on the naval base. When I approached the gate, there was 2 lanes to go into. I chose the right lane, and immediately after going into this lane I had a woman approaching our vehicle, screaming at me and pointing for us to back up.... More
