A nice open area for the kiddos to run. A dress up family photo area, along with a shooting arcade with a pirate theme. A little history too.

Great small museum. The escape room is great. The exhibits are cool and the place is tailored for a child visit. Good afternoon visit.

The fort is a renovated version of the old historic fort built in the early 18th century by French and was protecting Mobile from attacks by Spaniards and Brits.

Stopped by on the way back home from Louisiana and we learned about the city of Mobile during the French, Spanish, and American colonial periods. The fort is pretty small but it is still a fun stop.

The fort shows the history of Mobile with the Spanish French and American eras. Lots of costumed characters such as Daniel Boone, Amerigo Vespucci, pirates and astronauts. Some good history to read but not more than 1-2 hours worth of interesting things.
