“Interesting”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This free museum is a definite must-see for any military veteran. There is plenty to do for children as well as older visitors. There is also an IMAX theater.

“If you like planes, history and not spending money - this is the place!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This is the next best thing to the smithsonian and it is free (well, they accept donations - which we gladly contributed). It is flat out fantastic. Our boys were occupied for hours in this place. It is not to be missed.

“better than disneyworld”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This free ( yes I said free) naval air museum in awsome. If you are within 100 miles - detour here for a whole day. They have more planes than the smithsonian - everything from the first bi-planes to the lunar module-lander(not the actual one but a real copy). Meet and take one of the tour guides at the start. They are actual retired naval pilots - the info and storys they have are priceless. The coffee shop is also a must - have the polynesian salad - delicious and filling. Take in the I-max theatre (a canadian invention). Ride aircraft simulators. You probably will see actual navy f-18s flying overhead. If you are lucky the blue angels may fly.

“Best bargain on the coast”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

A visit to the naval air station and museum is not to be missed if you are in Pensacola. The museum is incredable and you could spend the entire day there. Don't miss the outdoors portion of the tour where there are dozens of planes on the tarmack. Did I mention the best part, it's all free.

Even if you aren't particularly a military buff, this place is amazing, with great displays and walkthroughs that kept my kids enthralled for hours!
