No charge, they have free shuttle tours around the historic district of downtown. The fort is a recreation, but it's an interesting tour. They have plenty of brochures and advice to help you plan your stay.

The self guided tour was excellent. Lots of history that few people know about as the Louisiana territory was settled -- pre Louisiana purchase. We loved the sights and exhibits.

We learned that when they were excavating for the tunnel, back in the 1970s, they discovered the foundation for Fort Condi which was saw military action during the Revolutionary... More

Fore Conde is free and worth the stop!! It is small and won't take more than an hour but is filled with fun photo ops and lots of Mobile history.

Very informative items and signs in the reconstructed fort. The welcome center is in this area and the ladies were very helpful. Brochures for all attractions are found there along with discount coupons.

Not your usual visitor center, you can spend hours at this location to tour the replica of Fort Conde. Lots of free parking and many attractions are close by.

On our recent first visit to Mobile we stopped at the Fort Conde Welcome Center. I believe the Fort was closed. But we were looking for attraction information for Mobile. The gentlemen in the Welcome Center were fantastic. They explained in detail all of the top attractions in the city along with the suggestion to use the local shuttle service.... More

History comes alive here with good displays and a helpful narrative explaining the time line from French to Spanish, to English, and eventually American use of the fort as well as laying claim to the town of Mobile. A good visitor center is adjacent with a very helpful staff.
