‪This museum was a short walk from our hotel, and adjacent to the Cruise Terminal. We got a reduced price because some of the exhibits were down. However, many good exhibits were functioning fine, and our admission price was a steal! It offers an excellent introduction to the Gulf of Mexico, maritime cargo shipping, sailing, environmental protection, and other areas as well. Some personal stories are included as well. On the top level, you can be the captain of a boat and sail through Mobile Bay and the Mobile River. The gift shop is nice and offers some inexpensive items for the kids. No food service is currently offered, other than some vending machines. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Time flew when we were there. Definitely worth a visit!‬

‪Before we actually visited the museum we called first after having read several reviews that were less than complimentary to find out the current status of their hands on exhibits. They mentioned, and was confirmed later on in our actual visit, that video and other functions on select exhibits were down due to a malfunction in their computer system causing the need for new chips, which because of the past Covid-19 supply chain issues have become increasingly hard to obtain. Although it did not meet our expectations and were disappointed, under the circumstances we completely understood. Had hoped to see the Bob Hope exhibit which several reviews had highly recommended, however that ended on the 16th of April. Bummer! They are hoping to get things back to some type of normal soon but don't hold your breath. I personally enjoy the wheel house experience in which you can captain everything from a barge to a tug boat. That was cool. We look forward to next year on our yearly visit to the Gulf to be able to fully enjoy the complete attraction as it was meant to be.

‪Way more interesting than I had anticipated.

Plan for at least two hours of self-guided, hands-on activities that are fun for adults or kids. My favorite was the wind generator that allows you to “sail” by changing the angle of a sail on a mobile “boat.” Another allows you to pilot a miniature tugboat and barge.

The design of the museum is unique—designed to feel like you are on a container ship—moving up the ramps (or stairs, your choice) through 5 levels.

Overall an excellent experience.‬

‪So many learning activities for adults! Two of us lady seniors were kept entertained and informed for the nearly 4 hours we were there. There was a special temporary show detailing Bob Hope's work with troop entertainment. 5 floors of everything you would want to know about shipping in the Gulf of Mexico. We piloted a sub and later a training device teaching me to drive a giant container ship. We laughed when I ran it into the dock twice.My friend did much better. A young man , an employee, helped us with this. He knew EVERYTHING! He told us about the worlds biggest container ship and explained what was going on outside the windows in the Mobile shipyard, describing giant navy jet boats that went 125 miles an hour and the retrofitting of a merchant marine easel. We could not stump him on any question we asked!. I also enjoyed reading the numerous nautical slang terms that decorated the stair railings.So many of the things we say came from seagoing culture. This place has everything from ecology to history to oil exploration cable manufacture. It will turn you into a maritime nerd.‬

‪Exceeded Expectations. With our daughter at Spring Hill College, we have been to Mobile multiple times the past 4 years. We had seen the Gulfcoast museum and said maybe we should do it sometime, but it wasn’t really on the top of our list because we thought “how interesting can a Maritime Museum be?”. Boy were we wrong! This museum was well designed and interesting. We found the exhibits applicable to the real world from how to read stars to the origin of shipping containers. One of the most interesting presentations was the simplest; plaques explaining common phrases with boating and ship origins. Posh = Port Out Starboard Home! We only had 3 hours, but could have spent a few more hours there. Highly Recommend!‬

‪This unique and beautiful museum offers terrific interactive exhibits on all things related to the Gulf...fishery, shipping, communications. I immediately went to the top floor and worked my way around and down. Loved their exhibits and wished my grandkids had been with me.

We were masked, just because, duh! And we always travel with charge cards for unexpected emergencies. So much for Mikebama's negative comments. His family missed a great visit.

Highly recommend! I hope lots of local schools take advantage of field trips here.‬

‪Recently, my husband and I had the chance to visit the GulfQuest Museum in Mobile, AL and it was the best two hours of the week! The building is clean and COVID-19 safety precautions are in place. From the sea songs being played at the entrance to the container ship-shaped museum to the view of the working harbor from the bridge at the very top, we were surrounded by the majesty of the Gulf of Mexico. The staff are pleasant and knowledgeable, ready to answer questions or point out areas of interest. They also seem to know when visitors want to explore quietly on their own and respect that. I plan to return with a couple of middle-school children who are sure to enjoy the new Coral Reef murals. Thank you, GulfQuest, for offering a cool and delightful experience. We will be back!‬
