On certain days/times you can see the Blue Angels practice on the base. Look ahead at their schedule on the website to see the times if this is something you want to see. They did a practice air show for 1.5 hours. The museum has...More

This is a military base that requires a military ID to enter. It is the home to the Navy's Blue Angels.

Go here and go early. It takes all day and it all is tremendously interesting for everyone. Adults can see planes and space vehicles that they will remember and kids can climb into cockpits of old and newer planes and play to their heart's content....More

The history on base is pretty impressive. Of course, there is the aviation museum, which is well worth a visit. There is also the lighthouse and Fort Barancas, and, for those with proper ID, the officer's club and a walk along the waterfront that features...More

You do not need a pass if you go to the correct gate. They will request ID there. That gate also takes you to the lighthouse. You must enter through the West gate off of Blue Angels Pkwy.
