The newest addition to the National Naval Aviation Museum, Hangar Bay One, adds 55,000 square feet of exhibit space to a facility that is already one of the largest of its kind in the world. Its façade reminiscent of hangars of old, the new structure primarily displays aircraft from the museum collection that flew during the post-World War II era.

The National Naval Aviation Museum is one of the world’s largest aviation museums. Located aboard Pensacola Naval Air Station, the facility boasts more than 150 beautifully restored aircraft representing Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard aviation and is Florida’s most-visited museum. Among the countless things to touch, see and experience are thrilling Top Gun Air Combat flight simulators, a variety of special exhibits as well as the drama and power of amazing IMAX® films on a seven-story certified giant screen. The Cubi Bar Café offers a unique dining experience, and the Flight Deck Store is the perfect place to find a memento of the spirit of Naval Aviation. Admission to Hangar Bay One and the Museum is free.
