Truck Campers will love this awesome activity in Florida with FREE admission.   National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola

The National Naval Aviation Museum is dedicated to preserving and displaying a wide range of memorabilia that shows the history and development of U.S. Naval Aviation, including Coast Guard and Marine Corps aviation.

There are tons of fun things to do in the Sunshine State, but not many are as fascinating, fun, and educational as the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. Not only that, but admission to this amazing museum is free! Not just one day or night a week, but all the time. Donations are welcome, and there are extra charges for some of the optional activities, but they certainly will not break the bank.

You will be taken aback by the large 300,000 square feet museum and the 37 acres outside for exhibit space. The museum’s collection includes more than 150 incredibly restored historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft and spacecraft.

In addition to the memorabilia and aircraft on display, the museum features free guided tours, a 325-seat IMAX theater with a seven-story-tall screen, flight simulators, a museum store, and an on-site café.


 

Even the museum’s café is an exhibit. The Cubi Bar Café was designed to look like the famous Cubi Point Officers’ Club, including the display of thousands of authentic plaques that once adorned its walls.
