This reproduction has a lot to offer - a glimpse back in history with dioramas and static displays to supplement the fort itself. We spent a few minutes in the visitor's center getting oriented and then strolled the parapets and finally the lower rooms where the displays are. All were well done - the visitor's center folks were very warm... More

Interesting place to explore in downtown that was free! Only about 1/3 of the recreated fort, but very well done and the exhibits were very informative. Also provides some cool views of the skyscrapers in downtown. Good historical information for those wanting to gain better understanding of Mobile's settlement.

I was a little disappointed that not much of the original fort was left. The view at the top was nice. I just wish that was more to see. It's self-guided.

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. So, we just walked left to right, poking into open doors. An empty interior here,... More
