If you like watching trains (the type royalty drags behind them) you'll love this museum. A great place to learn the history of Mobile's Mardi Gras by way of three floors of exhibits. Watch their movie, spend a couple hours gawking at elegant outfits, and then hit the gift shop for all your Mardi Gras needs.

Wonderful place to go an learn about the history of the Mobile Mardi Gras celebration. Loved looking at all gowns and robes and learning about families that have worn them.

Great museum. Good for kids and even fun for adults. Ifyou don't know about Mardi Gras, you just have to go there.

While I have lived in Mobile or near it most of my life, I learned something new from this museum. It's great fun and seeing all the gowns and capes are something to remember.
