Some places were not open and it was the first time to take a tour for one guide. Great effort but struggled a bit especially with questions.

Charming few blocks in downtown. Includes several small houses, an historic (sort of) church, and several Museums all for one low price. Ticket is good for 7 days.

We saw the church, very plain but with a nice stained glass window. Original windows were moved to the new christ church when the congregation went more upscale.
The Lear/Rocheblave House is very interesting. Built around 1895 but furnished as it would have been ca. 1920's.
Both of those are guided tour only which was very informative.

There is a re-enactment section with docents explaining how things were done back in the day.

Museum of Commerce was dull. No more than 10 min.
Museum of industry was very good. The big 3 were fishing, making bricks, and logging all presented in an interesting fashion.

Also included are the Museum of Art and Museum of History.
We reviewed them separately.

A couple of other houses are still shut from last year's Hurricane.

All in all, a good day's out!

This was a good set-up for a couple of hours. Make sure you book the tours in advance as there is a limit of guests allowed (especially in covid times), and they added greatly to the experience. Some of the self-guide houses were not so impressive.

Pensacola overall, seems to be feeling the effects of storms and Covid more than some cities. There is a great deal of clean-up that needs to be done in the area. The historic section is better maintained than most areas.

I booked my tickets online and reserved the slots for tours ahead of time, which was a wise decision as the tours were full. I did the tour of the Lear House and it was a great way of learning about the house in the 1920’s! The docent did a great job explaining life in the house during this time period! The ticket allows access for the Wentworth museum, Commerce Museum, and Industry Museum. I really enjoyed the Industry Museum and Wentworth Museum as well. The ticket is good for several days, but be sure to book the free tours ahead of time!

The tour of the historic homes was very interesting and informative. The tour takes a little over an hour and the guides do a great job of making the history come alive. The museum of industry adds another hour and is worth the time. Tickets are good for one week so you can break up your tour if you want. Several good places to eat and get a bite to eat right in the neighborhood.

We toured many houses and the Old Christ Church, shown above... We had an enthusiastic tour guide. The Price was very inexpensive... so well worth the price and the time taken to do the tour....

When your tour guide dresses in appropriate costume, has a wealth of stories and is actually a university grad in maritime studies, then you’re in for a real treat. I loved to visit the many old houses on the tour, supplemented by guide Robbie’s subtle remarks and even subtler innuendos. Lots of intriguing contrasts between early Victorian houses and houses later in that era, plus those of wealthy families and working class people. The tour includes artifacts and such materials as a rope bed tightener and a real live chamber pot. A four block section of buildings is preserved through the joint efforts of the city and the University of West Florida. Tickets are good for one week, a helpful feature since covering everything could take all day. The tour finishes at Old Christ Church built in 1832 and the pews and stained glass windows are fascinating. And if you appear in costume, you just might merit a free one at nearby Pensacola Bay Brewery.

Honestly, we never would have found this if we weren't looking for the Pensacola Bay brewery. But . . so glad we did. Took the guided tour (2x daily) with docent Chase who was knowledgeable. Also there are self guided tours thru houses and museums of industry andz commerce. The church and its history is beautiful and inspiring. A great peek into old Pensacola.

Old Pensacola Village is reminiscent of Colonial Williamsburg on a much smaller scale.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and are good for 7 days.The guided tour that is included is informative and takes you inside three restored homes and the Protestant church. The tours are at 11AM and 1 PM Tues- Sat, and lasted about 1.5 hours, so plan your time accordingly. The ticket also admits you the Florida History museum. The village is within walking distance to Palafox Street - the main (modern) street in downtown Pensacola. We combined a visit to the Saturday Farmer’s Market on Palafox with an afternoon visit to the village.

Our guide, Angelica, was very knowledgeable about the history and told many amusing stories. There are shops, pubs and cafes open to visitors on the grounds. We had mixed weather during our stay, so it was handy to visit on multiple days - the village on clear days and the museum on a rainy day. It is a lovely piece of history and gave us a perspective of American history that we were unfamiliar with.
