NAS Pensacola Open to the Public This Weekend

Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola will allow a weekend of public access to NAS Pensacola on April 22 and 23 from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m. through the West Gate only on Blue Angel Parkway.
All U.S. citizens or U.S. nationals 18 and older must have a REAL ID or passport. While on the installation, the public will be able to visit the Pensacola Lighthouse, Fort Barrancas, and the National Naval Aviation Museum (NNAM).
The Department of Defense (DoD) and the Navy require any identification card used for base access to be compliant with the REAL ID Act of 2005. Real ID-compliant identification cards are marked by a star on the upper right of the card.
If you do not have a REAL ID compliant identification, you must present an original or certified true copy of a birth certificate bearing a raised seal, social security card, and driver’s license issued by a state, territory, possession or District of Columbia that is not REAL ID-compliant.
All three documents must bear the same name, or a former name as documented on acceptable name change documentation such as a court order, marriage certificate or divorce decree.
Foreign nationals will not be allowed access.
Access will be dependent on available parking at the National Naval Aviation Museum and Pensacola Lighthouse. Once parking is full, public access will be halted until more parking becomes available.
Temporary traffic control points will be located on the base to prevent public access to other areas of the installation.
The following restrictions will apply to visitors during public access:
+No weapons (firearms/knives) allowed (to include Concealed Weapon Permit holders)
+No backpacks/coolers allowed (diaper bags or medically required bags are acceptable and subject to search)
+No alcoholic beverages allowed
+No drones allowed (countermeasures will be taken)
+Persons with felony convictions are not authorized base access
