As the son of a Naval Aviator during WWII and Korea, I have had the opportunity to visit this beautiful Navy museum on several occasions. Many years ago (44 to be exact), on one such trip when my dad was still alive, we were touring the then small museum. I noticed my dad carefully reading the names of gentlemen with... More

If possible go when the blue angles are practicing you will get a free airshow performance also. The number of different planes is amazing and it gave us an appreciation for our military personal. So would highly recommend going even if there was a fee to get in.

The kids loved it. So much to see, do, and touch! One of the first naval museums we've been to where they allowed the kids and adults to climb into the displays. Had a huge signing of the Blue Angels and even saw Fat Albert. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

This Naval base provides a great experience because you can see the Blue Angels flying so low that you will feel you have your own air show! The NEX (shopping center) is huge (they have more than one in base) has a diversity of product (tax free for federal employees). The golf course is fantastic and the lodging is very... More

If you like planes especially the older ones then this place is for you. They had movies also. I stayed and watched the Magic of Flight, it was very well done. The best part was the guided tour, usually those are boring, but this guy really knew his stuff. He was a veteran and gave some great history about the... More

So much here, tons of activities, an amazing exchange and an all around great place to explore. The Blue Angels are based here and you can often see them practicing among other planes always overhead.

This was a great and free activity to do in the area. 8 of us ranging from 1-39. Everyone enjoyed themselves and was well spread out. We did the age appropriate simulators. I would recommend the more expensive one, the lesser one really wasn't worth it. The Fighter Pilot Imax movie was good.

I came through this place many years ago and went back to review it. there is a lovely Naval Flight museum there that all plane buffs would love to see. Young men are indoctrinated into the program that takes about 18 months to earn their wings and depending on what discipline they elect will become prop, jet or helo pilots.... More

I'm neutral on the base itself, but it does have a National Cemetery, Fort Barrancas, and the Naval Aviation Museum to visit.
