Pensacola MESS Hall, Pensacola

4.6
#4 of 7 in Museums in Pensacola
Science Museum Museum
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.

  • Visited the MESS Hall with my 19 year old daughter and 12 year old son. The staff couldn't be nicer, and the exhibits were first-rate. I kept thinking that the MESS Hall was like a smaller version of ...  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.
  • 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!
  • My husband, my dayghter and I had a great time there and can't wait to go back! What a great place!!!!
  • We had fun. Very interesting place.

Where to stay in Pensacola

You'll find places to stay throughout Pensacola, but reserve a place downtown for the best local atmosphere and access to nearby beaches. Downtown Pensacola is on the water, and it features a collection of inns and bed and breakfasts in historical buildings and upscale tower hotels. The national chain hotels and motels along Interstate 10 by the Davis Highway and Pensacola Blvd. exits provide budget-friendly options within driving distance of downtown. It might be tempting to choose one of the budget motels along Highway 90 just west of downtown, but these reside in a rundown area. If you're arriving to spend most of your time by the ocean, stay on Pensacola Beach or Perdido Key, which sit just outside the city limits.
