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.
CUP OF JOE
By General Order 99 of 1914, Navy Secretary Josephus Daniels abolished the consumption of alcohol aboard U.S. naval vessels. That decree made coffee the strongest drink on board, so sailors thereafter are said to have demanded their "cup of Joe."
