The exhibit of Trader Jon's was the main draw for us. It was interesting to see a partial recreation of the bar with many of the original artifacts. I particularly liked the video of Trader Jon.

Depending on whether you have a lot or a little time planned, you will probably spend more time than you expected. Not only does this cover a wide time-span from 1559 to the present, it also zeroes in on WW II (Trader John's) and suburban...More

I enjoyed that they perceived the old "Trader Jon's" bar and all the Navy memorabilia. Lot of other displays of the history of Pensacola from the native American's to the present

The museum is a very nice way to spend hours looking at Pensacola's history. The new "Trader Jon's" exhibit is fun even if you aren't a naval aviator.
