We came for the Dali exhibit, which was awesome! We also liked the other temporary exhibit. The permanent exhibit though is small and nothing that I would pay admission to see. I wouldn't recommend visiting unless there's a temporary exhibit there that you want to see. The museum itself is nice and interesting because it used to be an old... More

Art rocks! And the Pensacola Museum of Art is rocking Salvador Dali until Jan 7th. The small hometown museum is located in an old jail which adds a bit of flavor to the atmosphere. An additional treat for photography aficionados until Dec 31st is the Joseph Constantino exhibit which is amazing. Enjoyed it! The local museums are just as laid... More

We were walking thru the downtown area. Came upon the museum and decided to visit. They were only open for one more hour. The museum is very nice and the upstairs exhibit is a very unique find that reminds me of items my great grandfather liked to collect from his travels. Will be back.

The artwork displayed was eclectic and beautiful and the admission fee was nominal for such an enjoyable experience.

Earlier this year my husband and I read an online article about the artist Stephen Knapp installing a show of his light paintings at the Pensacola Museum of Art. Neither of us had heard of Mr. Knapp but were captivated by the images of the installation. Then last week we realized that the show was about to end so we... More

This is a nice museum. It is housed in an old jail. There were two outstanding exhibits when we visited in August 2016.

The museum is very nice and worth visiting. It has a unique collection of works. The museum is located in the old jail and the bars are still there. Must see the light art exhibit. This is fascinating with how it is produced from a single white light and different pieces of clear laminated glass. They have art appreciation for... More

Stopped by to view their exhibit. This historic building was once the jail! You can still see the iron bars - gives another dimension to the art on exhibit

It was ok, the building was cool since it was a old prison. Doors were the prison doors. The upstairs Light Art was something we had never seen before but overall it was just ok. Very small place that takes up very little time.
