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 attraction to see. We enjoyed seeing this with our kids (6&8). They really thought it was awesome. They were able to climb through without any trouble. For parents, there are a lot of steep stairs to climb. Our kids were the perfect age but I could see that being a challenge if they were younger.
This is an awesome piece of history. This is one of the best things to do in Mobile, definitely a must see. It is a slice of history. She was the fourth and last member of the South Dakota class fast battleships from the 30's. It's been a floating museum since 1964. It's about 38000 tons and 680 feet long. Be sure to check out those awesome 16" guns.
