When in doubt, Museum it out…
Immerse yourself in the rich history of Mobile’s Mardi Gras Museum to learn about the true birthplace of Mardi Gras. Learn about costume design, float construction, carnival traditions, and Mardi Gras monarchs. There’s a lot to see here, so allow at least 2 hours to get through it all.
Speaking of Mardi Gras, what better way to celebrate than attending a Mardi Gras parade? Mobile’s parades are well-known to be family friendly, so find a parade route here and put it on your bucket list to attend!
