“Great tour”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

The people working at the museum are pleasant and helpful. Great Trolly tour. We self guide the museum. Very, very interesting. Wish we would have rode in the simulators, even at our age (50's) it would have been fun. We watch the Blue Angles on a diffrent day of touring the museum. It would have been to crowded. It was nice to leasurly look around.

“A must see in Pensacola”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

This is a very well organized and informative museum. A must do if you are in the Pensacola area. Kids had a great time. There are planes where you can sit inside the cockpit for photo opportunities. Many great photos and memories from the Naval Aviation Museum.

“Nice place to visit while the sun burn heals...”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

Spent too much time at the beach so we needed an "indoor day". The kids (7 and 9) have no interest in aviation what so ever but LOVED this place. They were so entertained. Lots of old cockpits they can climb into. I can't believe how much stuff is packed into this museum and it's free! But we made up for the free admission in the gift shop... oops!

Also be sure to take in the other sites on the base: the lighhouse, Ft Barancas.
