It is a wonderful museum with history not only of military planes, but areas that were set up for war days. The children can climb into jets and planes and pretend to fly. You can go with a guided tour and learn about each plane...More

Whether you are in Pensacola on business or pleasure this museum is a must see. There is so much cool history and 100's of past naval aircraft to see up close and personal.

Questions & Answers
We are wanting to watch the Blue Angels practice while we are vacationing in Gulf Shores in August. I checked the schedule, and they are at the museum. We watched them practice 3 years ago on the beach in Pensacola and loved it. Even though it was very loud, my daughter loved it too - she has autism. How early do we have to arrive at the museum to be able to get seats to watch them? I am concerned, with her autism my daughter cannot sit for say 2 hours on a bleacher or seat in the blazing sun, then an hour show, she will get heat illness we have found (her body just doesn't regulate temp. well), and it is VERY long to sit with nothing to do. We will bring adequate water, but how early do we have to be out there for a seat? Is there a place for those that are disabled? (She is not physically disabled, just intellectually).

Admission is always FREE! I always make a donation before I leave. You'll have to inquire about tours on arrival. Don't miss the IMAX presentation and simulators (small fees)!
