National Naval Aviation Museum

Published on April 16, 2018 by 2barefeet

Need a break from the sun? The National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola Florida is just a 45 minute drive. The museum is the world's largest Naval Aviation museum and admission is FREE! The museum is perfect for all ages with over 150 restored aircraft on display including a NC-4 plane which was the first to cross the Atlantic by air.

Other aircraft includes the SBD Dauntless Bureau Number 2106 (a veteran of the Battle of Midway), the Que Sera Sera (first aircraft to land at the South Pole), the last combat F-14D Tomcat and so many more! There are also vintage uniforms on display as well as historic documents and dioramas of World War I.

For a charge the museum also offers a state of the art large screen theater. Aircraft comes to life in this theater that is 3.5 times larger than a normal theater. 3D Flight Simulators are a favorite for kids of all ages. The museum offers two MaxFlight 360 simulators to take you to air combat and stunt flying. The 5 minute simulator experience can accommodate up to 15 passengers and can move in six directions to offer the ride of a lifetime.

Have you ever been lucky enough to see the Blue Angels fly over while enjoying time on the beach? It is definitely something to see at least once. One of the newest experiences at the museum is the 4D Blue Angels Experience. With 3D effects you will feel as though you are part of the air show. If you are lucky enough to visit on a practice day you can see the show for free and even get autographs of the pilots.
