Public access to NAS Pensacola is available only from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. through the West Gate on Blue Angel Parkway. We are a cashless museum.
The Blue Angels can be seen practicing over the National Naval Aviation Museum most Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from March to November. After practice on select Wednesdays, guests are treated to meet-and-greets with the team inside the National Naval Aviation Museum.
Opened in 1996, the Café’s decor and layout duplicates the bar area of the famous Cubi Point Officers Club that was a major source of enjoyment for Navy and Marine Corps squadrons, ships and units as they passed into the Western Pacific. For nearly 40 years, the NAS Cubi Point Officers Club, in the Republic of the Philippines, was a marvelous mix of American efficiency and Filipino hospitality. The club was especially famous for its Plaque Bar, where transiting squadrons retired old plaques and commissioned new ones to commemorate each WestPac deployment. The tradition of placing plaques in the bar was started during the Vietnam War and endured until the closing of the base in 1992. When the original officers club was closed in 1992, the thousands of plaques that adorned the walls of the club were packed up and sent to the Museum to be placed as they were when the Cubi Club was closed. The legacy of this Cubi Bar brings back many memories to aviators whose squadron plaques decorate the walls. The Cubi Bar Café is open daily and serves soups, salads, deli sandwiches and dessert. Our breads are baked fresh daily. Most menu items bear names that are a tribute to aviation, such as the Aviator Sandwich and the Chicken Pita Pilot.
