U.S.S Alabama Battleship

It looks like they are/have been in the process of changing some of the ship tour hours so it was a little off sometimes, but it's a lot of fun! Definitely plan to spend no less than 2 hours exploring the ship, air and submarine exhibits. We got there at 11 am and stayed until 2:30 pm.

The park is heavily staffed by Veterans. It was inspiring and amazing listen to their firsthand accounts of their time in service. We packed a picnic and let the kids stretch their legs.

They close at 6 pm, but they sell the last admission ticket at 5 pm. So if you want to go aboard the ship, get there before 5 pm. There are other things to look -- we arrived at 5:15 and stayed until they closed at 6 pm. Lots of planes, tanks, and memorials. Pretty amazing place! Next time will plan to get there early so we can go on the ship! It was massive!

Very interesting exhibit. It was fun exploring the battleship. Also a great workout!

USS Alabama

You can walk all over this huge decommissioned warship and visit areas of the ship that normally tourists wouldn't get to -- all self-guided. And there's another bonus: you can also climb onto the USS Drum submarine, and there are plenty of planes to investigate as well.
