This is always our #1 stop when in Pensacola. Kids love the aircraft carrier play area as well as all of the planes they can get into and explore. Highly recommend!

Excellent event & it's free! We've been visiting this area of the gulf for several years, but did not take advantage of this museum until today. It is great . . . many, many actual aircraft . . . up close & can touch. Take advantage of the free guided tours. The guides are very, very good. Note: They go... More

The nation should be proud of this fine Naval Aviation Museum which preserves all of the planes used by Navy operations since WWI. The displays and stories are well presented along with a tribute display to the Blue Angels. The actual reconstruction of the Cubi Bar was a surprise to my husband who had gone there while in the Navy... More

We visited with our grandchildren. They loved being able to sit in the planes. There was also other areas provided for active children. It is fascinating for adults too

This place is so HUGE! There are so many actual planes that were used in action. There is hands on action for the kiddos. The walk thru studies provide a very good look in to the lives that have fought for our freedom. Do not follow WAZE!! This will lead you to the wrong entrance and you have to go... More

What a GEM! You get in for free, and pay a small fee for some of the attractions inside. So if you don't want to fly in the jet simulator, it costs you nothing but time. And be prepared to spend some time! There is SO much to see and enjoy! The history of Naval Aviation from beginning to today.

2 trips so far and 1 simulator of the blue angels .. We had a wonderful afternoon, lots to see and stuff everywhere. History buffs and children will love this place. We plan to go again when the weather warms and take the trolley to the Tarmac . Our tour guide was delightful with many stories.
