This is a good place to visit. To bad you can't see more of the base but this is what happen because of the time we are living in. But still thumbs up to the Navy Department for maintaining this property so well.

Whether you watch the Blues practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, climb the stairs up to the top of the light house, or visit the Naval Aviation Museum; the Pensacola Naval Air Station will make you proud to be an American. I especially suggest the Naval Aviation Museum to vacationers. Great... More

We enjoyed walking around and viewing all of the aircraft from the past years. There is also a simulator that was tons of fun for any age!! They have a delicious deli in the museum so you can eat right there. The museum is free or donation only.

Climbing the steps inside the tallest lighthouse on the Gulf Coast is worth it. Beautiful iron stairs, and stopping along the way for displays about the light keepers.

The lighthouse is part of a museum with a store. Climb the 177 steps and experience what the keepers did. The view at the top is amazing.

One of the best museums I have visited. My father was in the Naval Air Corps in WWII and I could hear him in my head talking about some of these planes S I walked by. On top of that we got to see the Blue Angels perform. WOW !! Words cannot describe how awesome it was to see the... More

The view was spectacular worth the climb if you are up to it. Very hot inside, we were there in July---soo--, I would not recommend to larger folks, because the opening at the top is very small and precarious, when you leave the stairs. It was under renovations so hopefully they ad some good railing. A real workout. People there... More
