We visited during a vacation to FL last summer. This was one of the highlights (next to the ocean of course). Call ahead to find out when the Blue Angels are practicing and get there early for the show - it is worth it! The museum is incredible with tons to learn and see. Part of seeing the Blue Angels practice gives you access to see some of the planes outside the museum. There are tours and movies available as well. Plenty for your military and history buffs to see and plenty to keep the younger ones entertained as well. When we were there, the children's area was under construction. I would imagine it would be finished soon if not now. It looked like it would be a fun place for little ones to explore. We highly recommend a visit to this museum, especially if you have recently studied flight, or US History.

We just love this local attraction. We get to see the Blue Angles do a free air show. The museum is fun and exciting experience. Its full of Naval History. The IMAX changes it shows on a regular basis. Its free to get into but we always leave a donation. A great way to spend a day.

This is a definate "to do" in Pensacola! You can spend a full day here and want to come again to see more or do it again. Although some tours may be a bit too detail oriented for some children, others will be delighted. The tour guides REALLY do try to focus on the group they have i.e., children, adults, Veterans, etc. There is a play area when the youngest need to recharge, a wonderful snack area, gift shop, IMAX theatre, simulaters, indoor and outdoor displays Blue Angel Atrium...need I go on?

GREAT inexpensive field trip option. Packed with lots of interesting history and fun planes to explore. I would definitely suggest viewing the IMAX films. I have not seen one yet that wasn't awesome. The lighthouse is close as well. Don't leave without seeing or touring the lighthouse!

AMAZING. Do NOT miss this. Our family has gone every time we are near the area! So much to offer both visually and hands-on.
