  • Visiting the base was a great experience. All the workers were very welcoming and helpful. Great day.
  • The base was very clean and had beautiful grounds. We found all the staff very professional and thorough. A lot to do in the general vicinity.
  • A great place to visit. Tons of tourist opportunities and historical markers. Spend a day at the naval air museum and another seeing the rest of the sites.
  • Pensacola Naval Air Station or "Pensacola" as it is known, is the home of the Blue Angles and the National Naval Aviation Museum. The museum features 150 aircraft and spacecraft plus simulators and an iMax theater. Come see the Blue Angels practice, check out the simulators, and see the exhibits. This is a great experience. There is often a practice airshow on Fridays from spring through fall that is often open to the public. Check ahead as schedules frequently change. Final note is that this is a real, working air station. This review is only about the two parts most open to the public.
  • I visited the Naval museum and watched the Blue Angels practice when my daughter was stationed there. Amazing experience. Awe inspiring. Don't miss it. I can't wait to go back.
