NOTICE TO GUESTS: Beginning Friday, May 15th, we will be opening our doors to DoD guests only (due to current base access restrictions). The gift shop and tower will be open to guests, but the Keeper's Quarters will remain closed until further notice. 

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no restrooms or water fountains available to guests. Please plan your visits accordingly. Guests will be required to bring their own masks and gloves and wear them at all times while on the premises. Please also supply your own hand sanitizer if desired. Read on-site signage for social distancing requirements. 

ACCESS TO NAS PENSACOLA: NAS Pensacola is currently open to current DoD ID card holders and certain Veterans Health Identification Card holders. Unless sponsored through the Trusted Traveler program, no civilians will be granted access onto the base until further notice.
