Very limited eating places, not even a decent food court in the NEX. Very disappointed. Went to buy water for our cooler at the NEX and it was more expensive than local Grocery Store or Walmart. Hot Dogs buns were 2.99 for pack of 8 so we skipped that and found the local grocery store. NEX is a sad shame,... More

This would be a real treat for some one interested in airplanes and aircraft carriers. The trolley to visit the outdoor airplanes is broken down for some time and no estimate on when it will be back in action. I was very disappointed to miss this part of the visit. There is a lot of walking to see all. Lot... More

The base has one of the biggest and best naval air museums in the world. This is a "hands on" museum where you are encouraged to touch the planes, climb into the cockpit and see for yourself up close and persona. When the Blue Angels are at home, you can enjoy the practice air show and, believe me, you will... More

This museum is rich in Naval history. Take the time and watch the imax. The food is better than any shipboard I ever ate.

I have had lunch at the officers club at Pearl Harbor and been to a significant number of military installations in the US. The Pensacola NAS is the best looking one of them all. From an early 1800's brick fort to the Naval Air Museum there is a full day of things to do on this installation. Open to the... More

I spent one whole day at the Naval Museum and learned so much of the history of all the planes. The second day I went back to watch The Blue Angels perform. Well worth the trip.

FREE admission, spend hours here, the rides and movies will cost you but you will not believe the stuff they have. The restaurant has good food and you can relax and have a beer if you like.

The museum is a must visit for Navy & aviation buffs and family with kids. There are over 150+ fully restored aircraft and the museum is first class! The Presidential helicopter Marine One is a recent addition, and you can actually get inside and walk through the copter. There are several areas where you can get inside the planes and... More

Have been here before but they are adding new things all the time. Biggest draw is the ability to watch the Blue Angels practice on Tuesday & Wednesday free. This is always a good way to spend a day!
