Pensacola Mess Hall (Science Center)
Print Leave a comment
School-aged kids love Pensacola Mess Hall, a small hands-on science center. In the large, modern room, kids can choose from all manner of science-related activities. My daughter didn't want to leave! There are keva planks for building structures, clips and shapes from making large hanging contructions, sand and water to form into a river, balls to balance on a stream of air, parachutes to make and test out in an air tube, a bike to ride to power light bulbs, and more! Kids can also choose a kit from the back which provides instructions and ingredients for a small project. This is science at its best and a great way to spend a few hours on a Saturday.
After spending the heat of the day at the mess hall, head to Pensacola Beach to play in the sand at sunset!
If you like science or history, you'll love the National Naval Aviation Museum!
