The building architecture was interesting and some collections like old cameras and Coke memorabilia brought back memories though the collection was Not as large as I had anticipated. One hour and we had seen everything.

Gives a little insight what it was like in old Pensacola. Mr. Wentworth collected a lot of eclectic items and obviously was interested in many various things.

This is a great stop if your walking through downtown. It is free and air conditioned. It is a historical veiw of Pensacola. The docents have quite a bit of knowledge about the area so the are a good source for local happenings also.

Everyone will enjoy learning about the early days of Pensacola. It does not take a long time to tour and we learned things we did not know. Always a good thing. The Quayside Art Gallery across the street was as enjoyable as the museum. It's a two-fer:)

This museum is housed in the beautiful old Pensacola City Hall built in the early 1900s. There are artifacts of West Florida, Old Pensacola, shipwrecks, the Civil War, the collection of T.T. Wentworth as well as many other interesting items. This museum is a history lesson for young and old and there is no admission.

Overall, an interesting and sometimes strange collection of items amassed by Wentworth. One floor was dedicated to the history of the area, one floor to the collections, and one floor to special exhibits--at this time alligators, which our five year-old grandson enjoyed.

Seemed kind of odd the things that were int h is museum. It seemed liek all the junk this guy collected through out his life was massed up and put in this building. It was fun none the less and we made it more fun by interacting with some of the attractions inside! LOL
