  • This was Free as part of the History Museum. Across the street. It's more of a little park area with a few artifacts in the buildings.

  • I visited twice while I was in Mobile and was pretty impressed. The reconstruction is of the inner walls of the fort, but what is left is cool enough to go back and visit a second time. I loved the model recreations of the fort that are on display and our tour was very informative. I'd definitely go back when I'm in town again!
  • We visited June 5th, 2022, the first Sunday of each month is free. Normally, your paid admission to The Mobile History Museum includes a tour of Fort Conde. Very cool exhibition, fyi Fort Conde is a reproduction of the original Fort Conde, and that includes lower entrances and doorways because historically, people of the past were much shorter because they did not have the good nutrition, healthcare, and immunizations we have now. My husband is 6’2, seeing him stand next to the doorways was pretty funny. He really enjoyed the exhibits that included swords, guns, cannons, cannonballs, shackles, etc. A good place to take a guy, they love all the old military exhibits. My only complaint was that the building is a little hot in some places, you will feel bits of air conditioning here and there, maybe it is that way because of the way the building is constructed, and air conditioning was not around in the old days. But still fun, I saw people with their children, you can take kids here, the exhibits are well contained that you don’t have to worry about kids breaking anything. One of the kids was yelling inside the brick short doorway because he liked the echo, but I thought it was funny. This place was very informative, it helps seeing this so I can learn about Mobile now that I live here.
