The T.T. Wentworth Jr. Florida State Museum is located in the restored area of downtown Pensacola. That presents a small problem in that most of the parking in the area is limited to 2 hrs. To alleviate this problem, park in the lot behind the museum and get a slip allowing an additional 2 hours. The first floor of the museum is dedicated to Florida History and the history of the Pensacola area in particular. It is very well done with a film and a few interactive displays. The second floor houses a number of varied exhibits, each in a room of its own. The largest room was dedicated to Mardi Gras celebrations in the area. Another room was dedicated to Coca Cola memorabilia, another to photography, another to baseball and, strangest of them all, an exhibit of items collected by T.T. Wentworth Jr. himself, a man who apparently never threw anything away. There's even a mummified cat. The third floor contains rotating displays. When we were there it contained exhibits composed by schoolchildren on various subjects and personalities. We feel this museum was a very worthwhile stop and recommend it highly.
