Pensacola MESS Hall, Pensacola

4.4
#5 of 7 in Museums in Pensacola
The Pensacola MESS (Math, Engineering, Science & Stuff) Hall is a hands on experience for exploration. It embraces the learner’s need to “mess about” with science to gain intuition in scientific phenomena. This concept incorporates the ideals of inquiry based science, where learners' explorations are driven by their own questions, rather than the questions dictated by an authority figure.

  • This is a small facility, housed in one large room with a small room. It was definitely worth the visit for us, as we had 3 children, ages 7, 9, 11. They loved it and the adults also had fun looking a...  more »

  • Went with 7 and 5 yr olds and we had a delightful day! Lots to do, especially if you help the kids--and might learn something in the process! Once you've done everything, you can do favorites again. H...  more »

  • The kids liked it, 4 and 5 year olds, and we enjoyed it. We had fun for about an hour and a half. Definitely worth the 8 bucks for the kids but not worth parents admission price. Both my husband and I thought parents or adults shouldn't be charged which is why we gave it a 3. We were charged 40 dollars for an hour and a half of play and I think it would have been worth it if only the kids were charged. We had a 17 year old with us as well and it wasn't really geared towards his age.
  • We were in town on vacation and they have recipical benefits with our science center back home so we figured we would try it. My 3 kids( 7 yr old, 4yr old and 2 yr old)and my husband were occupied for hours. I had to drag them all away when it was time to go check into the condo. Great way to send a rainy afternoon :)
  • My 7 year old son and 4 year old son absolutely love coming here to explore. My 7 year old's 1st choice when I ask him where he wants to go that's fun is the Pensacola Mess Hall! He also enjoys attending the Summer Camps. We are members so it pays to come whenever we want!
  • My 4 & 5 yo loved it here. Its basically a big open room with tons of different activities which each have a different lesson. All of it is hands on, and the parents will HAVE to explain each activity, the people who work here do not. So dont bring kids here just to set them loose, its not that kind of place. Its a place for learning.
  • We had such a great time here one rainy day in Pensacola! It is walking distance from all of the fun of downtown and my 2 year old and 4 year old were thrilled to have such a fun place to play while dodged the rain. The staff was incredibly nice and the place was clean and full of fun things to learn from and play with. Would definitely go again!
