“learn about the people who colonized early Mobile”
In this immersive, interactive exhibit in the heart of Historic Fort Conde, visitors can learn about the people who colonized early Mobile. See historic artifacts of Native Americans and Europeans who played large roles in the evolution of the Port City in a time shaped by innovation, conquest, plunder, piracy, and war. Explore offshoot exhibit rooms called Lifeways that give visitors a taste of what Colonial life was like. The History Museum began renovating the Fort in October 2010, and phase one of the project, which are repairs to the building’s infrastructure, required that the History Museum close the exhibits at the fort to the public for an extended period while the renovations were being completed. Over the past four years, the History Museum of Mobile has renovated the Fort in an economically and fiscally-responsible way, reallocating funds from existing contracts to pay for Fort renovations.
It was a really small Fort, about 1/3 the size of the original. There was a lot of road construction so it was a little difficult to get to. It was a nice short stop on our Road trip. The people who worked there were really helpful and nice. It gave the kids an opportunity to stretch their legs and learn some interesting facts about the people who controlled the Fort.
This place was very interesting. I loved the statues around the property. It had so much history.
