Walk the decks of USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park, the highly decorated U.S. Navy ship that served for 37 months in World War II, now a museum at Battleship Memorial Park. The ship is half as long as the Empire State Building is tall and weighs 44,500 tons. Initially, the military intended to scrap the ship in 1962 due to its maintenance costs, but Alabama school children and corporate fundraising saved the ship and brought it back to its home state in 1964. After you’ve explored the historical vessel, you can step inside a World War II submarine, see cockpits of military aircrafts, or even enjoy a picnic on the park’s grounds. Our Mobile online visit planner makes visiting USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park and other Mobile attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

This experience was amazing we spent 6 hours touring this site. Everyone should visit to better understand history. This museum provides a deeper appreciation of the sacrifices that were made defending our freedom. Donations are appreciated to help preserve this priceless piece of history! The retired volunteer service personnel were a wealth of knowledge. This would make a great class or group trip.
We spent hours here exploring the ship and submarine. So many places to explore, up and down stairs (wear comfortable shoes). The ship is well-maintained and you will learn a lot about the sailors life at sea. The tour is self guided, so make sure you grab a brochure. It's super big and you're able to go into most of it. Take your time and really appreciate all the work they've put into maintaining this amazing ship.
