We took the 2 hour guided tour with Hillary. She had recently graduated with a BS in history from Western Florida University in Pensacola (which owns the historic village). She had been a tour guide for about 18 months so she knew the tour well. It was amazing to see what early settlers had to live with. Although the houses... More

Much smaller than I anticipated. It's a few houses on a small city block. You can walk around the block and see the houses. Most the houses and buildings have placards stating when they were built. However, to go inside you ave to pay. Not sure if it's worth the cost.

If you like American history this is for you. We attended the 25th Annual Open House & 70th Anniversary of WWII sponsored by UWFHT at the Historic Pensacola Village. It was outstanding. Every historic building was open. The displays (permanent and temporary) were excellent - informative & interesting. Everywhere there were costumed volunteers who were well versed in their role...

This is a nice walking tour of old Pensacola. Saturday they have people dressed in the era and talk about how they did things back in the 1800's?

This is a very tastefully preserved group of buildings and grounds that show the history of Pensacola. I am usually not a history buff, but I learned a lot about the early days of Pensacola, when it was active with shipping logs and producing turpentine. I was surprised to learn how the area was repeatedly devastated by hurricanes over the... More

So we could have gone to Gulf Shores, AL, but I wanted some freakin' history. Pensacola has boatloads of sweet history via the Historic Village. Multiple modern, well-done museums- my family dug the turn of the century town recreation. Tons of cool homes. My little ones didn't want to the tour, but the rest of the family enjoyed it.

For the price of admission you get to tour several buildings and walk through a village. We observed a black smith and baker working as they would have working back in the 1800's. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The tour was not rushed and well organized. Great Experience!
