Even though it was just a replica, the history was very interesting. The staff was very friendly. Easy parking too.

This incredible historic site doubles as a visitor center for Mobile. Within a scaled reproduction of historic Fort Conde are new, superb exhibits examining Mobile's colonial and early American era history.

We arrived at the end of the day, leaving us 1 hour to tour. We got nothing to take with us as a guide to this small scale replica of the original fort and there didn't seem to be any direction within the courtyard either.

Fort Conde the visitor sees is a replica of the first fort built in what is now Mobile. It is smaller than the original fort but enables the visitor to see what early life in the area was like. Anyone interested in early Mobile life should visit this ste and the neighboring Conti-Conde House

We talked with the wonderful people in the Welcome Center and then went on a self-guided tour of the fort. Very cool! The room are like in tunnels. The top is very neat too. And it's all free including parking!

We enjoyed the displays and walking around the fort. The lady in the welcome center was very helpful and friendly. The fort took less than an hour to tour.

Went with group of out of town visitors. They really enjoyed the Fort and going into all the little spaces used so long ago. No charge to visit the fort or welcome center. Personnel helpful in helping us decide what else to visit in downtown Mobile .
