Battleship USS ALABAMA, Mobile

4.8
Walk the decks of Battleship USS ALABAMA, the highly decorated U.S. Navy ship that served for 37 months in World War II, now a museum at Battleship Memorial Park. The ship is half as long as the Empire State Building is tall and weighs 44,500 tons. Initially, the military intended to scrap the ship in 1962 due to its maintenance costs, but Alabama school children and corporate fundraising saved the ship and brought it back to its home state in 1964. After you’ve explored the historical vessel, you can step inside a World War II submarine, see cockpits of military aircrafts, or even enjoy a picnic on the park’s grounds. Our Mobile online visit planner makes visiting Battleship USS ALABAMA and other Mobile attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This is a fun experience for adults and kids as well as educational. You are able to explore most areas of the ship above and below deck. There are selling guided tours and displays throughout that give you some of the glorious history of the ship and her crew. You can get a good sense of what life was like in this beast during WWII. You can also explore the WWII submarine USS Drum and a small but great collection of old and new military aircraft. I also stayed on ship overnight twice with Boy Scouts (only available for organized scout events I believe). Visit the USS Alabama and you won't regret it!
  • Super cool pit stop on the side of i10. We were on a road trip from Florida and we stopped and walked around to check out all the planes. Its 4 dollars per car to get into the park and then their is an admission fee to walk around the boat and submarine and see more planes in the buildings. We opted not to do that because of time but we still spent over 45 minutes walking around the park looking at everything. If you need a break while on i10, I definitely recommend stopping here.
  • Great. Beautiful. Awesome. Well worth the visit. All the planes are magnificent. I missed the sub because it was raining but got photos from the parking lot. Get there early and spend plenty of time enjoying everything. Guys at the airplanes and exit were very funny and friendly.
  • Great trip Tour guide was well layed out and represented the time in era and made you feel like you were there. Definitely will come back again. Your ship rates above the other memorial ships I've visited thus far. Keep up the good work. Thanks for your hospitality.
  • Always a good time. Came because Austal was having a tour of their newest Naval ship. And it was amazing to see. Never got to do something like that before, after the tour we got to eat and had full use of the park. It was kind of overcast but it was cool to have full use of the park. Got to see more than what I had previously, it was only my second time there. A fun day and you can learn a lot of history by visiting this park.
