Whether you're visiting family in Mobile, coming through town as a tourist or here for business, you'll find plenty of attractions and activities to occupy your free time. We take our play time pretty seriously here in Mobile and we know you'll discover just the right activities to make your time here a memorable one.
And speaking of attractions, Mobile is home to one of the newest museums in the country! Opened in late September, GulfQuest National Maritime Museum is an exciting, 90,000 square foot riverside venue and the first museum of its kind IN THE WORLD to address the maritime heritage and culture of the entire Gulf of Mexico. It's only the third interactive maritime museum and offers over 90 interactive exhibits and activities.
The Gulf of Mexico is a national treasure, serving as the international doorway to the Americas, from its discovery in the 1500s to the present day. Until now, no maritime museum has been established to celebrate the historical, economic and cultural significance of "America's Sea" and its coastal region.
