My daddy used to work in this building which also makes it special to me but the history and artifacts on display are invaluable jolts to the memory of a 74 y/o Pensacola native. Thank you, Mr. Wentworth.

Admission is free but "donations" are accepted. Some very interesting Civil War and sports history exhibits. As a history buff, I was impressed. A lot of what is on display some people say is "junk" collected by Mr. Wentworth over his lifetime. People woulds just drop off their curiosities and he found a place for them. A unique venue worth... More

Lots of interesting artifacts related to the history of Pensacola, the peninsula and the state of Florida, as well as a mix of things from the collections of T.T. Wentworth. Admission is low, and lower for AAA, military ID, and over 65 (so bring that AAA card!) Admission also entitles you to visit some of the other historical sites in... More

Overall the best part of the museum is the interesting story and display of the cat. Free parking is a plus also

We went to the T.T. Wentworth Museum because it was supposed to be a museum of oddities and it was free. As it turns out, there was nothing odd in this museum (unless you count a history of Pensacola and a Coca-Cola rooom). There is also a charge ($6.00) to see the contents of this museum and I really wanted... More

The changing exhibits are always interesting. When we visited this time the exhibit discussed the Cold War and life during that time in the U.S. But really, if you visit you just need to see the Petrified Cat (also called the Mummy Cat or Ghost Cat). Ask at the desk where it's located. The legend is that the ghost of... More

The T.T. Wentworth Jr. Florida State Museum is located in the restored area of downtown Pensacola. That presents a small problem in that most of the parking in the area is limited to 2 hrs. To alleviate this problem, park in the lot behind the museum and get a slip allowing an additional 2 hours. The first floor of the... More
