I don’t think there is any other way to describe this visit other than “WOW!” We loved our trip to the museum. We had a wonderful and knowledgeable docent to start us out who knew so much about the two aircraft carriers that we spent at least half an hour with him. It was priceless. He’d been a pilot in Vietnam. Once again, thank you sir for your service and wonderful tour. But the museum is like nothing you’ve ever seen. Planes everywhere. From the first planes the navy used to the current ones. Prep yourself for a few hours but it’s well worth the time. We loved our afternoon there.

Visiting my GrandMarine and we had such an enjoyable trip. Lots to do and everyone was so friendly and respectful. The museum is a must see. Please obey the rules and drive safely around the base. The MPs at the gate were very reassuring of our safety and everyone else's on base.

As an aviation and military history enthusiast, I highly recommend a visit to NAS Pensacola, climb the lighthouse and watch the aircraft doing touch-and-go’s and fly-bus from Stewart field. The Museum of Naval Aviation is a must see / must do for aviation and history fans. The presentation and exhibit on the WWII aircraft recovered from Lake Michigan is very interesting and very well done. Fantastic collection of aircraft from the first US Navy Aircraft to current generation.

It's so cool to have a nice museum near us. The NAS museum is amazing. Love the Blue Angels and going to their homecoming.

The Naval Air Museum is inside the Naval base, and unless you have a Department of Defense pass, access is denied.

DOD only. Period. No soup for you! Are you kidding me? A museum that the public can’t see. What a waste.

Give us a reason at least. I understand you don’t want the unwashed masses that aren’t in the DOD to soil your grounds, but come on man!

Indescribable amount of historical artifacts, planes and memorabilia. We spent a good four hours here and still felt like we could have stayed longer and seen more. The place is huge. A great activity for a rainy day.

My family and I went to the Naval Air Museum and had an awesome time. If you are a DOD ID cardholder you are able to enter no problem, the museum is free and has a lot to offer including a little cafe to take a break-in. Some of the inside attractions are still closed but the main part of the museum is open.

I would definitely recommend anyone serving or who has served with a DoD ID card to visit and also take non DoD ID cardholders with them like family members or friends, there are veterans in the museum that want to share their stories with anyone willing to lend an ear.

Again great experience we should never forget about our history

Museum is CLOSED to general public!! Access is EXTREMELY limited to certain conditions. Clearly read website disclaimer or CALL to verify. Museum website is NOT VERY clear on this. Unless escorted of have Dept. of Defense card you are not getting to the Museum.
If you don't believe this CALL first
