There are things for everyone in the family here. People of all ages like the imax films as well. There are various showing times. One special thing here some might not know, is on certain days behind here you can watch the Blue Angels practice. Practice days and times are online. One point that might help some is there are no wheel chairs, none electric or pushable. There is a lot to see walking around so this is important to remember if someone cannot walk much.

Having grown up in Pensacola, and, having been in the military for 20+ years, it's great to get old home memories set on a world stage. Just check it out.

We visited the museum on a Sunday, and it was not crowded. The museum is clean, huge, and lots of different planes to see. Eatery on site. IMAX theatre with different times and shows. Lots to see and learn. Kids really enjoyed the planes. We took the trolley out the field to see old planes. It was kind of boring and inside trolley was hot. Blue angels practice here on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Visitors are invited to watch. Do bring a hat or umbrella and plenty of water as it is hot sitting on the bleacher. The museum is free!

This is one of Randy's favorite places to visit. The kids love it to because there is an indoor playground for them.

This museum was fabulous. Home of the Blue Angels. There were many life size aircraft to view plus models of carriers. We also took the bus trip outside to view the various aircraft. Our driver was knowledgable about the aircraft and we learned a lot. It is definitely worth your time.
