Tourist Spot Ship
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.

  • Great visit. Wish they had a touch more money for upkeep, but I can't imagine what takes to take care of the large battleship, submarine, and airplane hanger. They obviously put a lot of work into the entire park. Lots of walking take good shoes, not a great place for flip flops, narrow step stairs. Bring plenty of water. I'm very glad we made the trip.
  • Awesome place to visit! We enjoyed the duck boat tour while we were here! & I HIGHLY recommend it! You should definitely ask for Jeremy and Ashley! They did a great job! Made it so much fun. & learned so much about Mobile that I didn't know.
  • Something to enjoy for all ages. A great hands on history lesson. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to look. For the full tour I would recommend about 3 hours just for the battleship and submarine. They also have a hanger with planes and a memorial and other planes located around the property. Definitely an all day trip and worth the time!
  • This is such a fun place to take family. I believe it is run all by private donors and they have done a great job. The first time I visited with my husband we had the pleasure of talking with a sub vet who was volunteering in the USS Drum. Super fun and everyone was so nice.
  • Fun & interesting to look around the ship. Everyone we dealt with were friendly. Not too crowded when we went. Lots of cool things to look at and learn about! There is a submarine too! You literally could spend all day there.
