NOTICE TO GUESTS: We are located on Naval Air Station Pensacola. NAS Pensacola is currently open only 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, and thus will not be able to access the Lighthouse. 

PLEASE NOTE: Guests will be required to bring their own masks 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.

On days the Blue Angels fly, the Lighthouse Tower will be open only to guests with reservations to watch the show. General Admission guests will not be able to climb the tower until the Blue Angels land. The museum and grounds will be open for all guests in the meantime.
