National Naval Aviation Museum - “From Typewriters to Strike Fighters”

By: Carrie McLaren


My family and I are headed to Pensacola in May to visit the National Naval Aviation Museum

While we are there, I’m especially interested in seeing the latest exhibit, “From Typewriters to Strike Fighters” – highlighting the role of women within the Navy. 

From their early days in administrative roles to the women serving on the front lines, this new, multimedia exhibit features artifacts, personal interviews and images depicting the role of women through the years. 

The women highlighted in this exhibit serve as great role models and I’m looking forward to my young girls seeing this exhibit.  How inspiring to hear stories from an Operation Iraqi Freedom Navy helicopter pilot, a Coast Guard search and rescue pilot and more. 

As one of the world’s largest aviation museums, you’ll see more than 150 beautifully restored aircrafts on display.  The museum is located at Pensacola Naval Air Station and admission is free.  It sounds like a fantastic spot for families.  Stay tuned as I share more about our visit next month.
