Welcome Aboard!

               


With 90 interactive exhibits, simulators, Displays and theaters, GulfQuest/National Maritime Museum is a place you'll want to visit often.

The maritime exhibits are housed on multiple decks of a life-sized replica of a container ship, so come ready to walk and browse and take your time. There are many places to sit and enjoy the view, both inside the museum and outside overlooking the beautiful Mobile River and the busy Port of Mobile.

Everything you need to plan your visit should be covered on our website. If you have questions, however, please don't hesitate to call Visitor Services at 251.436.8901.

Thank you for visiting GulfQuest! We look forward to sharing the adventure with you.
