“So interesting”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

This is a wonderful way to learn about the history and culture of Mobile. Housed in a former City Hall, the building itself is beautiful. The exhibits were so interesting and artfully displayed. A good place to start if visiting the area for the first time.

“Interesting Little Museum”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

The museum had great history of Mobile exhibits, professionally done. We found the part about Mobile in World War II especially interesting, particularly the short film. The temporary exhibit about gadgets, gizmos, and doodads and the traveling exhibit about patents were also fascinating. Definitely worth the small admissions and a couple of hours.

“Good if you have an hour or two to kill”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

My teens enjoyed this museum. There were some interesting displays but don't plan to spend a whole day here especially if you have children under 10.
