The last place I want to share with you from our trip to Biloxi is the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park located in Mobile, AL. My boys have enjoyed learning about military vehicles and the history that goes with them ever since they started playing digital games. Of course, my husband, who is a history professor, has been interested in this stuff since he was a young boy too, and the park definitely brought out the kid in him.
Learn about the impressive history of the USS Alabama here.
This is the third military museum we’ve visited (not counting plenty of military exhibits we’ve stopped to see at other places), but it’s the first warship they have been able to tour. It was quite impressive with many exhibits, short films, and of course, just seeing the inside.
Took one look at that and thought, I’m glad I wasn’t the one doing those dishes.
The park also has many aircraft both inside and outside the buildings, and the other big highlight was touring a submarine.
Here is the USS Drum.
If you’re interested in military history and are near Mobile, Alabama, this place is a must see.
