Every four to five weeks, Improv Comedy Underground puts on an unscripted, interactive show filled with spontaneous jokes and side-tickling chortles. Each show consists of a group of improvisational performers who participate in a series of wit-testing games led by a host and audience suggestions. Because of the on-the-fly nature of the hour-long shows, the content isn't always predictable and may contain adult language and humor, so it's not recommended for young children or stoic philosophers in the midst of vision quests.

Built in 1857, the Southern Market/Old City Hall building served as home to three groups: the mayor and his city council meetings, several local militias, and a food market. Since then, the Italianate building has been deemed a national landmark, and its tenants have been whittled down to one: History Museum of Mobile. With its permanent exhibitions, the museum preserves more than 300 years of Mobile history, starting with the city's first Native American inhabitants. Interactive exhibits and artifacts—including antique silver and a cannon recovered from the CSS Alabama, which sunk during an 1864 battle—usher guests all the way to the present day.

Along with its mainstay exhibitions, the museum hosts events dedicated to film screenings, lectures, and debunking myths purported by Magic 8 Balls. History Museum of Mobile team has also helped open two other historical sites in town, including the Phoenix Fire Museum, which houses horse-drawn steam engines.
