NAS Pensacola not only has a world class museum on board, there are several sights to see that get you out and into the environment. Two forts to walk about, a historic lighthouse to view and walk up, gorgeous beaches, RV park and a marina with boats and kayaks to rent. It's one of the closest launches to the gulf... More

Being prior military, we really appreciated the beauty and sterling upkeep of this naval base. Really a place to be proud of. The base exchange was huge, just like a department store. A nice visit.

We take all our visitors to the museum. Everyone has found something that interested them. There are many displays that children can climb on and enjoy. There's even a play area for little ones. Adult visitors often mention a family member who was Navy and they love remembering stories they were told and perhaps even seeing the plane or ship... More

Sure, the Naval History Museum of Flight is fantastic, but the entire base is striking - personnel and volunteers are knowledgeable, polite, always willing to offer help and directions when needed! Impressive, especially when you realize how long this base has been in existence!

Pensacola NAS is the cradle of naval aviators. As every other US military base there is everything to allow a student, coming from far away, to live comfortably: gas station, commissary, night club, beach.... All these structures are accessible to the visitors. But be aware because, being a military base, you need a military ID to get in, or you... More

The Pensacola Naval Air Museum is well worth the visit. There are many interesting airplanes , some hanging from the ceiling, and information about each plane. The store has a variety of items to purchase and there is a restaurant and IMAX theatre. No admissions unless you wish to attend the movie.
