History Museum of Mobile
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.

“I had not been to the museum since my childhood growing up in Mobile. I LOVED what they have done with it..first walking into the galleries to behold the former courthouse adornment was awe inspiring and I believe would make most folks want to learn more about the multi-cultural history of the city of Mobile. The city has done an excellent job with the museum and I feel that it would be worth a repeat visit in the future. :) Your potential answers to question 2 are a bit rangey IMHO, I wouldn't say that I probably wouldn't have gone at all, but rather that I wouldn't have in quite some time, possibly 2-3 years. :)”
