The lighthouse is part of a museum with a store. Climb the 177 steps and experience what the keepers did. The view at the top is amazing.

One of the best museums I have visited. My father was in the Naval Air Corps in WWII and I could hear him in my head talking about some of these planes S I walked by. On top of that we got to see the Blue Angels perform. WOW !! Words cannot describe how awesome it was to see the... More

The view was spectacular worth the climb if you are up to it. Very hot inside, we were there in July---soo--, I would not recommend to larger folks, because the opening at the top is very small and precarious, when you leave the stairs. It was under renovations so hopefully they ad some good railing. A real workout. People there... More

Base is awesomely maintained with several attractions. Beautiful Veteran Cemetery, Awesome Naval Aviation Museum, and also the lighthouse. Varying days you can see the US Navy Blue Angel's practicing. You can see their schedule on the Naval Aviation Museum website.

This base has been around for a long, long time, and is the "cradle" of naval aviation. The museum and the lighthouse are well worth visiting!!!

Unlike the naval aviation museum the light house is not free. you pay a few dollars to climb 177 see-through stairs, which can be terrifying for some people. i also didn't think the place was particularly secure - the top deck is guarded with a tiny hand-rail. Although I didn't see anyone falling off (thankfully!), it could happen. The view... More

I am here on a regular basis as part of my job and I always enjoy my stay. The base is peaceful, the landscaping and history are breathtaking. I wish I was still on active duty so I could be stationed here.

There are numerous attractions to see inside the Naval Air Station, Pensacola. It's the home of the Blue Angels, where you can actually see them practice flying on any given day. The National Museum of Naval Aviation is also located inside the base and showcases the vast array of historical aircraft that shaped our history. Make sure to wear comfortable... More

The national cemetary makes you remember how we have our fredom. You can then see one of nations best museums, a 200 yr old fort, and a 150+ yr old light house. The beach is amazing.
