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 USS Alabama and the rest of Battleship Memorial Park are well worth your time and worth the admission price. This is living history that you are able to touch and see. A great family attraction. My only complaint was the snack bar. We had kids with us, and they got hungry around 1:30 pm. We went to the snack bar and were informed that the grill was closed. They could not cook us anything but would sell us chips and soda or candy. I pushed the issue, since the park was open for several more hours, and the snack bar was also open for several more hours. The food service employees were rude and stated they were not about to dirty the grill after 1 pm, something which is done for employee convenience and the heck with paying visitors. I did not want to ruin our day, so I did not push the issue further. So, if you have kids with you, take food or eat early. The park is very much worth seeing. If you are a military, you can get a discounted admission by showing your ID card.

USS Alabama is saved from being scrapped, by caring people in Alabama as well as in the United States. They contributed financially to buy it over and display it at the Mobile Bay. It is really a very well-preserved ship and we are really impressed by how they lay out the self guided tour. It is easy to follow and I think it is fun for kids too (as long as they behave themselves!) The aircraft display and submarine (USS Drum) were cool too. Be sure to watch the Battleship video and the Submarine video to learnt more about them. The video on the Battleship is on board the ship while the one for the submarine is in the aircraft display area, right before you board the submarine.
Salute to the People who helped make all this possible for the many more generations to come!
