Owner description: At Mobile’s Battleship Memorial Park, you don’t have to look very far to find heroes. From the Battleship USS ALABAMA to the Submarine USS DRUM and over 25 aircraft, the spirit of military pride is alive and well.Aboard the battleship you will be able to explore 12 decks. Among those, you can climb inside gun turrets, get locked in the Brig, man a 12mm gun and much more.Also at the park, you will be able to go below and explore inside the oldest Submarine on display, Submarine USS DRUM. In the Medal of Honor Aircraft Pavilion as well as in the park, you will be able to view many rare and historic aircraft. A few in our collection include: A-12 Blackbird Spy Plane, OS2U Kingfisher, F-86L Sabre Jet, B-52 Bomber, just to name a few. While in the pavilion, don’t forget to take a ride on the Flight Simulator and experience flight without ever leaving the ground. It’s an unforgettable experience for the entire family. All tours are self guided. Allow approx. 2.5 hours.

The prices were to high just to walk aboard a ship but I enjoyed being able to tour the ship

I was one of the first kids to tour the Alabama when she was first opened to the public back in the 60's. Over time, the 16" gun turrets have been allowed to slide. One turret was spray painted on the interior with some cheap paint on everything...now the paint is flaking off and rust is everywhere. Compare how the U.S.S. Mass. or the North Carolina look in comparison. They need to spend less resources on that aviation display, and maintain the weapons systems on the Alabama. I highly recommend this historical ship, maint. issues aside. The ship exudes the power, bravery and quality of construction of a long gone era.
