Overview
More
The Mobile Museum of Art includes a permanent collection of approximately 10,000 works of fine and decorative arts from America, Asia, and Europe, spanning periods from classical antiquity to the present day. The Museum is supported by a unique public/private partnership of city and community support; its facility is owned by the city of Mobile, and the art collection is privately owned.Founded in 1964, MMofA has grown from a modest initiative of The Board of Commissioners of the City of Mobile and two private arts entities, the Allied Arts Council, and the Mobile Arts Association, to the only accredited art museum in southern Alabama.

I'd heard this museum was worth a trip from our guide at the Oakleigh House, and I'm so glad we listened! It wasn't on our original itinerary because it is pretty far removed from the historic attractions downtown, but it's worth the drive. The collection...More

I was very surprised at the collection the museum has acquired, quite beautiful. At the time I went, there was a beautiful wood exhibit that was unbelievable. I could have just sat and enjoyed the beauty.

I am not really a fan of art or art museums but this museum was beautifully spread out over three floors overlooking the bay. Didn't really spend much time looking around here because it does not interest me that much.
