A very interesting museum narrating the history of Mobile. A favorite of most appeared to be the room of duplicated miniature "replicas" of the mansions of Mobile!

We toured the museum during a convention in Mobile. There were a variety of exhibits that showed the history of Mobile. I enjoy history, so I was fascinated with the many facts of how Mobile developed.

I was in town for business and wanted to have a better understanding of Mobile's history. This museum did a nice job of taking the bulk of Mobile's history and making a Cliff's Notes version. The building itself is lovely and I enjoyed its many exhibits. Well worth the $7.00 entrance fee.

We visited this museum on June 3rd. You can park your car at the parking lot on Royal Street across Fort Condé for free, it is only one block away. The museum is divided in different parts: dollhouses, history of Mobile, Civil War at Mobile, ship industry and faces of Mobile (Hank Aaron).

I visited the Museum because I was part of a conference being held there. It was beautiful inside and out and the staff were friendly and wonderful. I would have loved to really look around but I couldn't. However, I would recommend visiting if you are in Mobile. Plus it is a block away from the pricier hotels and the... More

Very interesting exhibits, mostly for adults. You'll need time to read everything here. The history museum ended up being one of our favorite stops in Mobile.

Excellent museum on the city and area. It held our attention for hours as we learned about the earlier settlers all the way through modern time and events.
