USS Alabama – Mobile, Alabama

This post is part of a series of Day Trip to Mobile, Alabama posts.  See the other places that we visited:  Gulf Coast Exploreum and Fort Conde. 

After visiting the Exploreum and Fort Conde, we drove to Battleship Memorial Park where the USS Alabama rests.  Admission is a little pricey (but well worth it) so after spending money at the Exploreum, we decided to skip the actual tour of the USS Alabama.  It was also packed when we arrived!  We plan on visiting the battleship next time we go to Mobile.  Entrance into the parking is $2.00 a car.  Admission to the USS Alabama is $12.00 for 12 years and older, $6.00 for 6-12 year olds and it is free for 5 and under.  Tours are self-guided and the website recommends that you plan on spending approximately 2 hours on your visit.  Bring a picnic and have lunch in the park!


Have you visited the USS Alabama?  Do you have any tips or hints for a visit to the battleship?
