Battleship USS ALABAMA, Mobile

4.8
Walk the decks of Battleship USS ALABAMA, 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 Battleship USS ALABAMA and other Mobile attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Great place to spend the day looking around. So much to see. To stop and think about being out at sea on the ship is hard to imagine. Can’t imagine how loud the guns have to be. Don’t forget to check out the sub and airplanes also the tanks. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice gift shop.
  • Be prepared for lots of climbing up and down stairs, and sore legs the next day or two if you are not used to it. But it is worth it to see a piece of history. It was magnificent! I only wish it wasn't so cold and windy the day we were there 🙄 but still very much enjoyed my time with my family and friends roaming the decks and halls of this ship.
