A number of interesting exhibits mostly with historical significance. Best case will only keep 4 year old busy for 45-60 mins. We could only visit 50% of museum, second floor only as they allow a single child's bday party to reserve entire first floor

This museum was small. Mainly history stuff, not many activities to do but the kids had fun with what was there. Not a bad price either.

Small museum with fun things for kids to play with. The downstairs is one large room with different themes. The upstairs is larger and has different rooms with various activities. Overall, a good place to let your kid have some indoor fun.

We have been here multiple times while on vacation. My 10 year old picked it today. Lots of hands on stuff downstairs and plenty of Pensacola history downstairs. You can get a week long pass to all the downtown museums and it's super affordable!
