At the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida, visitors can stand nose-to-nose with many of the more than 150 restored Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard aircraft. Elaborate, life-size displays re-create a WWI battle station, a 1940s-era American street, a WWII aircraft carrier deck, and more, while IMAX movies, short films, and hands-on exhibits bring it all to life. "The Cockpit Trainers exhibit was Dabney's favorite part," says Elena Reyes Lovins of Sherwood, Arkansas, who visited with her daughter, then age 3, and her husband, Chris. "She was able to get in and 'fly' several different planes, flipping switches and moving the control stick while listening to recordings of actual radio transmissions." On many Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from March to November, you might even see a Blue Angels squadron practice. Free admission and tours; flight and motion simulators $6 to $20; IMAX movies $8.75 adults, $8.25 ages 5 to 12; free ages 4 and under. source
