  • This place was pretty cool. Lots of history and crazy costumes! Great for class field trips or just to take a day away from the rest of the city. Guided tours are available in addition to the ability to explore this giant house all on your own. Don't miss the Striker goat!
  • Way better than I was expecting. The guided tour is really what makes it special with some context on what exactly you are looking at. Worth a trip.
  • Wonderful place! Way bigger and more interesting than I expected. The tour guide, Craig, was amazing. Enthusiastic, funny, and knowledgeable.
  • Find the history of Mardi Gras in Mobile all under one roof. Fun place for a party. Great place for a bit of history.
  • This is a really big museum just about Queens & Kings of Mardi Gras. For $5 you have a good guide to enjoy your visit. My English is not very good so I did’´t understand everything but my eyes were very happy to see so many colors and strass! Mardi Gras in Mobile is totally different from New Orleans, less music more glitter.
