Pensecola Navy Air Museum

Recommended Posts

I've been there... Well... In 1994...

But I totally loved it. They had a recreation of a WWII carrier flight deck with an Hellcat and an Avenger. They even had a Zeke. 

Don't know how this museum is nowadays. But back then I really enjoyed the stay.

Best museum on the planet if you are a naval air buff.

I've been there twice and enjoyed it a lot, it is smaller then Dayton Air Museum and you can easily cover it in a day.

To follow up, the museum is currently restricted to DoD personnel or visitors with those personnel, due to the recent shooting that took place involving a Saudi pilot trainee on the air base. So, I can't go until they open the doors to the gen public again. Check their website out before you go if planning a trip. I'm going to try to make it up there when they re-open to the general public.

Thanks for the update on the admission restrictions.  Although this seems to be a case of closing the farmhouse door after the horse is gone.

There's a pretty nice museum at Robins AFB, GA in case you were not aware.

Agreed but it is standard procedure. Breach in security in military facilities in general demand a total inspection and check and approval. It is a ton of paperwork new procedures and it cost millions
