Best museum ever!

Don't miss an opportunity to see this museum. We have been twice, and it was just as amazing the second time. Well worth the trip!

I visited with my family during October 2016. There is a large number of aircraft on display and several free interactive activities. This is an amazing museum and you could spend a half day seeing everything. If you want to take the trolly out to view the planes on display outside, get your tickets early as they run out quickly.... More

Took the guided tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and added anecdotes about several of the planes to highlight their histories. The movie was also excellent and not to be missed. Sorry we didn't have time to watch the one on D-Day as well. Make sure you have at least three hours to see as much as you can.

Playing on Day 1 was the Magic of Flight...history of flight up to the Blue Angels; playing... More

When I'm in the area I always make sure to visit the Naval Aviation Museum. Headed that way and wow what a traffic backup at the main gate. Took maybe 20 minutes to get to the gate. I thought it was probably due to the physical ID check of everyone entering the base. Nooooooo. How lucky can the uninformed get... More

I visited the National Naval Aviation Museum and was thoroughly impressed with the cleanness, the meticulous care of the display aircraft, and the broad scope of information that is made available to the public. Personally, I am somewhat indifferent about military aircraft, however I found the material at this museum fascinating. For example, there were letters written by a pilot... More

This is the best attraction in Pensacola. Like planes? Then this is the place to be. Admission is free. This museum is HUGE with two floors. Be prepared to walk A LOT! There is a gift shop, restrooms and a place to eat. The Cubi Café offers great tasting sandwiches and burgers. The food there is good, too and reasonably... More

We had heard that you could watch the Blue Angels practice for free certain times of the week. So we did a little research and at certain times of the year you can! And the museum and walking around the planes were an added bonus! Im telling you, you cannot go wrong taking a visit to this place. Everyone in... More

The Naval Aviation museum is excellent -- do not miss this. The aircraft are incredible, presented with explanations/dates, historical artifacts and memorabilia, movies, and more details than we have ever seen. The displays draw visitors in and keep them wanting to learn more throughout the entire experience. Some of the aircraft are presented with props and visual effects which help... More
