Maybe I just picked a bad day, but the museum was so crowded that it made it impossible to enjoy. Many of the exhibits are interactive, but it was impossible to enjoy the interactivity of them because the lines were always a mile long. I...More

There are really only a HANDFUL of aviation museums in the world that match the quality of what is offered aboard this museum on NAS Pensacola. Home of the Blue Angels and free admission, this is a not-to-miss attraction while in Pensacola.

We went to the museum as a field trip for home school children. We were met with the most welcoming crew. This museum is free. They love to honor veterans. As a veteran and parent we have been amazed. Well worth it.

Not only is it a restaurant, it is the re-built authentic Cubi Bar (Philippines) Officers Club, complete with historic squadron badges and memorabilia.

No, this is a museum and I do not believe pets are allowed.
