History & Heritage

Pensacola is proud of its rich heritage, historically significant events and landmarks.

We recently marked our 450th anniversary. In celebration, we hosted the king and queen of Spain, the world’s third largest tall ship the Elcano, and renowned winemakers and artists.

Every year, we invite visitors to celebrate with us at our many historic sites, festivals and parades. You might be surprised to learn that we’re the first European settlement in the United States. Our rich history lends itself to fascinating historical and archaeological sites, allowing you to absorb our colorful past.

360 degree full motion flight simulators, special hands-on exhibits and more than 150 historic aircraft will amaze you at the National Naval Aviation Museum. Furnished period houses, several museums and one of Florida’s oldest churches at Historic Pensacola Village are located in downtown Pensacola near charming shops and eateries. And you can literally dig into our past at summer archaeological digs by the University of West Florida.

Whether you climb to the top of Pensacola Lighthouse, let the kids have fun in the Discovery Gallery inside the T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum or visit Veterans Memorial Park to see the only permanent replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., the quality and variety of Pensacola’s historical attractions delight more than just history buffs.
