At Mobile’s Battleship Memorial Park, you don’t have to look very far to find heroes. From the Battleship USS ALABAMA to the Submarine USS DRUM and over 25 aircraft, the spirit of military pride is alive and well.Aboard the battleship you will be able to explore 12 decks. Among those, you can climb inside gun turrets, get locked in the Brig, man a 12mm gun and much more.Also at the park, you will be able to go below and explore inside the oldest Submarine on display, Submarine USS DRUM. In the Medal of Honor Aircraft Pavilion as well as in the park, you will be able to view many rare and historic aircraft. A few in our collection include: A-12 Blackbird Spy Plane, OS2U Kingfisher, F-86L Sabre Jet, B-52 Bomber, just to name a few. While in the pavilion, don’t forget to take a ride on the Flight Simulator and experience flight without ever leaving the ground. It’s an unforgettable experience for the entire family. All tours are self guided. Allow approx. 2.5 hours.

I had never been in a battleship or submarine before, so I was very interested in what I would see. Its amazing everything that they had displayed and set up on this ship. It really gives you a front row seat of how these men and women lived in such tight quarters. They also have a building where you can... More

I brought two kids ages 8 & 10. They loved following each of the 3 tour routes . It was the perfect way to introduce them to the history, while moving the entire time, keeping their attention. We only had 2 hours to spend, and we had to hurry a bit at the end, skipping a few things like wandering... More

We took the 3 self-guided tours of the battleship and toured the USS Drum submarine. Very impressive. Makes you realize what a sacrifice it is to represent our country in the armed forces.

There were 3 self-guided tours of this WW II ship and all were informative. You can actually visualize the life of the sailors who lived on it by touring the ship. Allow a minimum of 2 hours. There is a submarine you can tour and a building housing historic planes on the grounds as well.

We visited the Battleship USS Alabama Park yesterday. Consistently we heard others saying "we only planned to be here an hour and we've already been here 2 hours"... :) Morale of the story, if you plan to take all 3 self guided tours on the USS Alabama, spend a bit of time reading some of the galleries, then walk through...

They don't make them like this anymore. A thrill to see it up close. There was so much more than the battleship. They have planes, tanks, subs, etc. Plan on at least 2 hours to see it all. I think it took me 3 hours and almost 300 pictures before I was done and that was not seeing everything. I... More

This park also has outside static displays of lots of aircraft including a B-52. There's a huge air-conditioned indoor aircraft hanger with tons of aircraft, fighters, bombers, helicopters and such. The admission also gets you into a WW2 submarine.

Went here with a 10, 6, and 5 year old. They throughly enjoyed the ship and talked about it a lot afterwords! It's a lot of climbing small ladders and walking but the kids were able to do it on their own and never complained.

This is a great educational visit for the family. The way the ships are presented are some of the best I have ever seen. It shows alot of appreciation for our history and military, but like alot of the places, the gift shop prices are astronomical. That is the only down side .
