A wonderful museum. Great history and stunning exhibits. You will not believe the detailed costumes. Very interesting and not to be missed if in the area. Great staff. A special shout out to Toni in the gift shop. She's very sociable & knowledgeable.

We were prepared for a quick visit and got engaged in a long fascinating tour by Docent Rick. We were amazed at the costumes, art, and photos. The story of Mardi Gras in Mobile was so beautifully presented in this gem of a museum.
