History of Pensacola

Did you know Pensacola is the oldest Settlement in the USA. Yup,8 years older than St Augustine and 40 yrs older than Williamsburg. What else? Go see for yourself.

While my husband was taking a class I wondered around seeing the sights in Pensacola. This is a very interesting place. The gentleman was a collector of unique objects. It was certainly not boring - the building was quite lovely.

TT Wentworth was an interesting local eccentric, businessman, and politician that left an eclectic collection of oddball items to the State of Florida- and helped fund this interesting historical museum. It's in the Historic downtown Pensacola area, and now a part of Florida State University. The Museum is part of the 'walking history tour' area and has a good timeline... More

I had the chance to visit this museum while in town. Within this museum's three floors is lots of different exhibits showcasing the history of Pensacola and Northwest Florida. There's enough to see at the TT Wentworth to occupy at least two hours of your time. Best part of the ticket price is that it includes admission to several other... More

We toured this museum on a Sunday because of the discounted half price. We were surprised to find out that only the indoor museum was open on Sunday and the rest of the Village was closed. The pass is good for the week, but they are closed on Mondays. They did tell us this when we were buying our tickets... More

The website is off on price and schedule. The price is lower and good for 7 day entry. There are only two tours on Saturday. The museum is also open on Sunday. Entry gets you into the museum, village, several museums in the surrounding area, and the tour of houses when available. On the first floor of the museum is... More
