There is a lot of cool historical things on display here, but it's pretty basic. Kids and history lovers will like it for sure. Since it's a recreation (not their fault, obviously) it would have been cooler had it been the actual location, etc. But still a cool place. Check out the Mardi Gras park right next to it and inexpensive parking lot too.

This was Free as part of the History Museum. Across the street. It's more of a little park area with a few artifacts in the buildings.

The Reproduction Fort Conde is a nice addition to the Mobile History Museum and included with the Museum ticket. Only takes about 45 min to do. Small exhibit of the history of the fort is interesting. Originally located across Church St in what is now Mardi Gras Park.

I was interested in seeing Fort Conde as part of my touring around Mobile and the bay area. I have to say of all the forts in the area this one can be given a miss. There is really not much to see in terms of the history of the fort and possible the best thing to do is take photos of the skyscrapers of Mobile.

To tour the fort you need to buy your tickets to both the fort and the history museum. I did not know this at first so arrived at Fort Conde first. I was told that I could tour the fort for free then buy my ticket at the museum which I found extremely odd. I did the honest thing and bought my tickets first but just ended up shaking my head throughout most of the time there.

This hotel is truly exceptional. If you have an opportunity stay here. The area is unique and the staff is friendly and outstanding. But the breakfast is incredible. The menu selection includes a host of unique items. My favorite was the banana foster french toast. WOW
You won’t be disappointed if you choose this spot.

You purchase tickets at the museum a short walk away. While there I went through an Egyptian exhibit which otherwise would make the ticket price not worth it for the fort alone. The fort itself is a reproduction with minimal original artifacts on display. There was a gentleman who worked there that answered a few questions prior to the self-guided tour of the grounds. Lots of reading to understand what all took place. This is down town so expect to pay for parking on top of the cost of entrance.

We visited the History Museum of Mobile whose ticket also covers admission to the fort. At 12 pm when we left the museum, the gates were open, but we decided to see it at the end of our day...around 3:45 because it closes at 4:30. I knew from the reviews that it's a partial reproduction of the original fort and doesn't take much time to tour. Well it was closed and locked when we arrived.

Although I have been to Mobile several times, this is the first time I have taken the opportunity to visit this museum. I did not know what to expect so everything was new and fresh. The displays are professionally done, laid out in a logical order and very informative. I recommend it as a very good way to learn the early history of Mobile and it’s relationship to other Gulf Coast communities.

We visited this attraction thinking it was somehow the real deal......as it turns out the fort is a replica and is 1/5 the original size. The original fort was located nearby, but this "fort" is built on this new location.
The fort is more of an attraction, with trading post, shooting gallery, escape room, photo booths, and a restaurant.
