Not really anything I would recommend. We went on ducks ride, so entry fee was a mere $11, not really worth that. The current fort is a small scale model built in the 70s. So this attraction is not a historical site. Minimal Amount of...More

I’ve visited this attraction several times over the years. Prior to its current iteration (new management), it was once a place to learn about Mobile history...no longer true. All I can say is...how disappointing. I’m not sure why they still are using PORTIONS of past...More

Had not been in years and really enjoyed all the improvements. Much more educational now, and my kids loved the photo area where they could dress up in period clothes. The views of the city from the fort are beautiful!

Have been to this fort many times in the past when there was no entry fee. Now one adult and two children cost $19.25. Definitely not worth it. A child is not interested in reading all the info. This is self guided. The consumed characters...More

We enjoyed walking around and exploring the fort. The museum displays were very well done. We felt that the price was a little high considering the amount of items/exhibits you can see. Maybe they should raise the price a little and include the museum across...More

It was 6 or 8 dollars, we are both 60, so I do not know the price for kids. We felt it was worth it and a great place to take pictures Robert
