Math, Engineering, Science & Stuff

The Pensacola MESS Hall is not a typical science museum. Rather than exhibits with planned outcomes, visitors get to work like real scientists, developing questions and creating experiments, engaging in complex reasoning and learning science just through tinkering. It’s all hands-on science. Learn more.

MESS Hall location
We are located at 116 N. Tarragona St. in downtown Pensacola, right behind Caldwell Associated Architects. (Need directions?)

Planning your visit

The Pensacola MESS Hall’s school year hours of operation are 2pm to 5pm on Tuesday through Friday and 10am to 5pm on Saturday. Admission is $8 per person, or free with a family membership.

Featured Exhibit Marble Run

Marble Run

Design your own marble racetrack and race your friends! The same track pieces and tubes can have very different results depending on angles and other factors. It's a great hands-on demonstration of physics concepts like acceleration and velocity, and it's just one of many permanent exhibits at the Pensacola MESS Hall.
