In order to align NAS Pensacola with security directives issued by the Secretary of the Navy, the air station commanding officer has directed that beginning February 1, 2016, all visitors to the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Barrancas and Pensacola Lighthouse who do not possess a Department of Defense identification card or are unescorted by the holder of a Department of Defense identification card, will be required to enter the installation via the West Gate located off Blue Angel Parkway.

Aircraft Carrier Models (Entrance & Quarterdeck)

Over a dozen expertly crafted display models guide visitors from the first landing aboard a ship by Eugene Ely in 1911, to the modern nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. U.S. carriers were key to defeating Imperial Japanese forces during World War II, and during the Cold War matured into premier assets for first response to international crises. Today, the aircraft carrier is  critical to U.S. power projection and diplomacy, serving as four-and-a-half acres of sovereign U.S. territory, anytime, anywhere.
