To experience all that the Fort has to offer—including a colonial escape room, colonial photo room, shooting gallery, self-guided museum tour, and armory—you’ll need an admission ticket.

The Fort is open year round, 6 days a week, Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-5pm. We are occasionally closed for special events.

When you arrive, start your visit at the Trading Post to pick up a free copy of our “Map of Colonial Mobile.” This map guide will show you which buildings are open to explore.

The Fort offers its guests a variety of opportunities to relive the Colonial period in Mobile. Depending on your interests or focus, visits vary in length and activities. The Fort is filled with exciting historic stories, interactions, and informative programs that are constantly changing, expanding, and family-friendly fun.

The Fort is open all year, with reduced scheduling during special events. When adverse weather occurs, we encourage guests to explore the covered areas of the Fort as well visiting the Trading Post or our new restaurant, Sylvia’s Biscuits and Poboys. Extenuating circumstances such as steady rain for more than 3 hours during the day may sometimes require a guest to request a ticket for another days’ visit. And at the Fort guest satisfaction always comes first. Only if requested the guest will be offered a return visit (given same product originally purchased).
