Excellent collections of one mans life in Pensacola, Has variety of items, different rooms are themed. Coke room is cool, as is Mr. Wentworth's private collection room. Free admission always appreciated. SHouldn't miss this if visiting Pensacola.

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

T.T. Wentworth, Jr. donated over 150,000 artifacts and historical items to the state of Florida. This three story building has displays about Pensacola's history, and showcases Wentworth's collections. There is one whole room dedicated to Coca-Cola. And the museum was free.

we wanted to see this museum after reading about it in trip advisor. As one of the plaques inside said,'Tom Wentworth never threw out nothing' . They change out his treasures regularly. Lots of collections.

The museum had exhibits tracing the history of the city of Pensacola and were displayed in chronological order. It was very easy to trace the developement of the area. It is wheelchair accessible and the exhibits are not crowded together. It also has a coka-a-cola room!

I love small cities/towns with pride--and Pensacola has it. Start your visit with a tour here and to the nearby historic village...and you'll get a greater understanding of the challenging and interesting history of this area.

Lots of local artifacts for University of West Florida digs and also digs just behind the Museum. I believe Tuesdays its free. When I took visitors there was an area of interest for children.

I wouldn't rate it toward the top as far as museums go. It is nice and is informational. But needs a bit of a lift aesthetically.
