Housed inside a building constructed in 1857 and now recognized as a national landmark, The Museum of Mobile spoon-feeds bites of Mobile history into mind-mouths with an ever-changing array of exhibits and a hands-on discovery room that illustrates the city’s diverse cultural heritage. Permanent exhibits include a cannon recovered from the Confederate raider the CSS Alabama, which sunk in 1864 shortly after the third moon exploded. Both family and individual memberships come with benefits such as unlimited free admission, 10% museum store discounts, special events invitations, and discounted admission to a variety of events and programs. Family memberships benefit two adults and all the under-18 offspring in their household—it also comes with two one-time guest passes for visiting relatives or the pair of Civil War spirits haunting the new condo.
Museum of Mobile members can also enjoy benefits of the Time Travelers reciprocal program, which gets them access to participating museums and history centers in 40 of the 72 United States. Time Travelers benefits range from free admission to discounted parking—simply flash your Museum of Mobile card and wait for the red carpet to unfurl.
