Very nice museum with knowledgable docents. We took the trolley tour of the "bone yard" of planes waiting to be restored. Our guide was retired Naval Pilot who was a wealth of information and a true lover of Naval Aviation.

I've been going to the museum since I was a little girl. We go at least once a year to see what's new and how it has grown. It's an all day walk around. Love it.

There is nothing quite like National Naval Aviation Museum. It is an wonderful "hands on" experience which allows you, whether traveling by yourself or with family, to not only see the history of aviation but also to experience the thrill of climbing into aircraft. It is simply amazing! Please allow plenty of time to walk through hangars filled with aircraft,... More

Go during the practice time of the Blues, but be sure to go early for parking. The details in the museum were excellent as I went through flight school here. Be sure to bring ear protection if you are going to watch the air show from the flight line.

If you have an interest in Naval Aviation this is the place to visit. We live in Pensacola and have visited the museum dozens of times. It is updated with new exhibits frequently. Time your visit for a Wednesday after the Blue Angels demonstration practice and get autographs from the pilots.

This is a wonderful place to take anyone of any age. It's full of history. The past, present and future are all represented here. You can see the Blue Angels, see a movie, and a visit to the gift shop for some souvenirs is a must. You won't regret time spent here.

The museum is a good presentation of Naval Aviation history. Vietnam Nam up to the present. Space travel, Coast Guard, Blue Angels, even Nixon's Helicopter used for his last transport out of DC. There are videos of WWII and simulators of a ride with the Blue Angels or a ride through the desert of Iraq. An interesting afternoon. A lot... More

No admission and lots to do, not only for adults but kiddos of all ages! Has a really fun indoor playground for the younger ones, plenty of seating room for those who need a rest while they play! Most displays are hands on, great learning experience for school age children. Don't Miss This One!!

To learn history, to see history, to be able to touch parts of our history, it's all here! Don't miss this place! Plan on spending a few hours to really delve into learning about the World Wars, Vietnam, our space exploration, our beginnings of flight, and so much more. It's definitely one of the best!
