Owner description: At Mobile’s Battleship Memorial Park, you don’t have to look very far to find heroes. From the Battleship USS ALABAMA to the Submarine USS DRUM and over 25 aircraft, the spirit of military pride is alive and well.Aboard the battleship you will be able to explore 12 decks. Among those, you can climb inside gun turrets, get locked in the Brig, man a 12mm gun and much more.Also at the park, you will be able to go below and explore inside the oldest Submarine on display, Submarine USS DRUM. In the Medal of Honor Aircraft Pavilion as well as in the park, you will be able to view many rare and historic aircraft. A few in our collection include: A-12 Blackbird Spy Plane, OS2U Kingfisher, F-86L Sabre Jet, B-52 Bomber, just to name a few. While in the pavilion, don’t forget to take a ride on the Flight Simulator and experience flight without ever leaving the ground. It’s an unforgettable experience for the entire family. All tours are self guided. Allow approx. 2.5 hours.

We went with some friends just to take a quick look around and ended up spending about 4 hours. There was lots to see and lots of ship to cover. Several areas honoring those who have served. I will say it was 60’s outside and probably 40’s inside in areas. So if you are going during cooler weather bring a jacket at least. Besides the Alabama there are several planes and a submarine for you to look around.

This is a small way to immerse yourself in the challenges and demands Navy sailors endure. The ship is massive and the interior exhibits do an excellent job of depicting ship-life. Humbling.

We stopped here while we were in town. There was so much to see, we really enjoyed it. I love that it was a self guided tour and you could see everything at your own pace.

If you are in Mobile this is a great place to visit. The battleship is well preserved and worth seeing. We have been here several times The last time we one on the duck boat tour for an additional fee. Well worth it. I highly recommend walking around the memorials, the battleship, the submarine and the warehouse. Very cool and worth the fee.

You do not see battleships that often and that close. Here is the possibility to visit one and you can roam through the whole ship. Gives a good idea of how live on this ship (in the war) must have been.
