Historic Pensacola is a collection of 28 historical buildings and museums[1] managed by the UWF Historic Trust, a direct support organization of the University of West Florida (UWF). Historic Pensacola is located in downtown Pensacola, Florida, situated between Plaza Ferdinand VII and Seville Square. Parking is available behind the T.T. Wentworth Museum, based in the former City Hall.

The museum complex is largely run by a small UWF staff, some paid UWF students, and many volunteers.

Admission is purchased for a week, and includes access to the entire complex and guided tour of several historic buildings. These buildings can be entered by visitors only during the tour.
