While on vacation in Gulf Shores we decided to drive to Mobile for the day. This was our second stop for the day and a wise one! The couple at the information desk were great! They gave us several ideas for things to do and let us know about the free tram service. The fort was a nice little walk... More

While exploring historic Mobile, it's a good place for a quick history and archaeological lesson; it's worth the 30 minutes it takes to read and see the artifacts.

Fort Conde is small and will take about an hour to explore. The exhibits do a nice job of telling the history of the Fort. Be sure to take the steps up to walk the roof of the Fort, the views are great and the benches are a nice place to relax.

There is absolutely not enough parking here to even attempt to visit the museum. It was rather disappointing.

My kids and I love to come here when we are just downtown . Whether it's feeding the birds or going to the peanut shop,this is a place we have to come to. All the war items, pictures and the maze like trail, they look forward to seeing every time.

Fun place to start in exploring Mobile. Very close to the Exploreum and a stop on the Oyster Trail. Neat history of Mobile and how it was ruled by the French, Spanish, British and finally the USA. Neat perspective on the origins of the city.
