Our visit was ok. There is a lot of stuff in the museum over the 2 floors of exhibits. We spent about 1 1/2 hours in it and was able to see everything. The ticket price also gets you into the museum of commerce and museum of industry.

Several floors of interesting history. A lot of very interesting artifacts. Some of the displays were not quite what I expected.

This is a very nice museum, as it gives you history of Pensacola, has displays and artifacts, and is very interesting to visit if you're into museums and history. There is a new addition to the museum that I want to go see. It is the addition of "Trader John's", which was a landmark historical bar that was located at... More

Our group of five enjoyed visiting the museum, but our schedule didn't allow us to stay as long as we wanted. We want to go back at later date. The displays show Pensacola at earlier times and it appears they continue to add to it.

While my husband was taking a class I wondered around seeing the sights in Pensacola. This is a very interesting place. The gentleman was a collector of unique objects. It was certainly not boring - the building was quite lovely.

TT Wentworth was an interesting local eccentric, businessman, and politician that left an eclectic collection of oddball items to the State of Florida- and helped fund this interesting historical museum. It's in the Historic downtown Pensacola area, and now a part of Florida State University. The Museum is part of the 'walking history tour' area and has a good timeline... More
