GulfQuest National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico
GulfQuest is the first museum in the world dedicated to the Gulf Coast’s rich maritime traditions – and one of only two interactive maritime museum in the U.S. Visitors spend hours exploring the Gulf of Mexico, a national treasure that serves as the international doorway to the Americas, from its discovery in the 1500s to the present day. The 90 interactive exhibits are housed on multiple decks of a life-sized replica of a container ship. There are many places to sit and enjoy the view, both inside the museum and outside overlooking the beautiful Mobile River and the busy of Port of Mobile.
