I've dragged my wife to the aviation museums at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH, and the Smithsonian Air & Space museums more than 10 times. So this time she decided to skip this one. However, my brother and a great friend enjoyed the museum completely. Good display of aircraft, good sets of scenery depicting different eras of aviation and... More

In describing Pensacola Naval Air Station I would be remiss if I did not say that this base is known as "The Cradle of Naval Aviation", that said lets talk about Pensacola NSA. First and foremost it has one of the best Naval Aviation Musems in the USA, and it is free. This museum contains planes from the first flying... More

The museum at the Naval Air Station is a wonderful place to see. The displays are amazing and there are people around to ask questions of. I was especially interested in the display about dirigibles. The children's area has a mini version of a large ship the kids can climb around in and other fun things for children. Really a... More

Tons of history on base to include a fort used for coastal defense during the civil war. Home of the Blue Angels. World class aviation museum. Excellent golf course.

We went for the blue angels homecoming air show and it was spectacular! They have tons of airplanes and helicopters on display to walk around and even sit in along with the Budweiser horses and amazing avionic displays such as dog fights, wing walking, skydiving, gliders, bi-planes and its all closed out by a close up and personal blue angels...

Historic with fantastic Lighthouse and Naval Aviation Museum. The museum is totally free. One could spend all day there and not see everything. Staff were very nice. The Pensacola Lighthouse is my new favorite place and well worth the 6 dollars to climb the 177 steps to the top. Not for those afraid of heights.

We loved this NAS museum! It was free and lots of wonderful planes to see from our countries history. Great tours and guides. You just can't see it all in one day.

Free admission and free parking. You can easily spend more than half a day here to see it all. Only disappointment was it was around the holiday and so no volunteers to drive the trolley tours out to see the planes on the tarmac. Would have enjoyed that. They have so many planes in these buildings and arranged to maximize... More

NAS Pensacola was my wife's first duty station being in the "white shoe Navy", nurse corp. not many military bases allow civilians to travel through without active or retired military sponsorship. There is a lot to see on base. For those who are active duty or retired there are two RV parks to choose from. The navy lodge is always... More

I would highly recommend taking a tour with a volunteer docent. They can bring the mmuseum to life.Don't miss the hall of fame on the mezzanine. No food are beverages can be brought inot the museum area (a good thing).
