National Naval Aviation Museum


Experience hands-on history at the National Naval Aviation Museum located on board Pensacola Naval Air Station. See more than 4,000 artifacts and over 150 beautifully restored aircraft representing Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard aviation. Experience the thrill of flight in the Flight Simulators, catch all the drama and power of the amazing Giant Screen Digital Theater and refresh with a tasty lunch in the authentic Cubi Bar Cafe. Then take home the spirit of Naval Aviation with a unique memento from The Flight Deck Store.

Due to current restricted base access, the installation including the National Naval Aviation Museum is only open to current Department of Defense (DoD) ID cardholders and Veterans with a Veteran Health identification Card (VHIC) ID cardholders with either a service connected disability, a Purple Heart, a POW or a recipient of the Medal of Honor. At least one of these categories must be listed on the VHIC under the ID photo.

DoD ID cardholders can escort up to 15 guests onto the installation. Veteran Health Identification ID cardholders (VHIC) can sponsor up to 15 guests onto the installation; however, they must come to the Visitor Control Center (VCC) located adjacent to the main gate.
