The displays are housed in rooms ,of what may be an old mansion. Lots of interesting things to look at. Can spend hours looking at everything.

There is a lot of Pensacola history in there. Had a good time exploring each floor. There was even a Coca Cola section. We found it very interesting. I would recommend it if you are in the area.

Loved this clean and tidy museum that houses so many items. It is full of interesting things and the history go the area. It even had an apron display! Not sure if it was permanent. Lifts to the upper floors.

I remember Mr. Wentworth. When I was a child my mother would take us to see all the great stuff at "Mr. Wentworth's Museum." That was way back in the day and long before all of his great collection were moved to this wonderful venue. This museum stands directly upon the site of some of the most notable historical events...

The building is lovely and the exhibits are very nicely done. I only wish there had been MORE to see. The third floor wasn't open, but I would certainly have enjoyed having more to explore. I wasn't ready to leave!

We learned a lot at this museum about the history of Pensacola. It's a well-laid out museum and even has a Coca Cola exhibit. The cost for this museum is included in the Historic Pensacola Village. Activity military and seniors pay only $3.50 for a 7-day pass. There is plenty of free 2-hour parking close by. We loved it.

he first floor is the historical emphasis. The 2nd and 3rd floor are so-so and the exhibits will change from time to time. The historical and archeological emphasis is most relevan t.

Museum is located in former City Hall in a yellow oak double winged building situated a top part of the former Spanish/English fort. Wentworth amassed the central holdings but recent finds also like from ship wrecks of Luna (1559) just found in the last 20 years. Excellent display signage.
