The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park was easy to access and very detailed. It was great to get to walk around and see so many tanks, planes, the submarine, and the battleship all in one location. We arrived early so able to get plenty of pictures in before the crowd arrived. As we were leaving around noon, the parking lot was beginning to fill up.

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park Admission Ticket
This place was awesome. The boys and I loved it. Such a cool experience and the tours we're actually laid out quite well if you pay attention to the numbers. We took at least 4 hours to go through everything, my 3 old was able to keep up but dragging towards the end. The battleship has lots of narrow stairs. But worth it

We stopped here while driving between Florida and Texas, and weren't 100% sure if this was a good idea, but our family thoroughly enjoyed this visit. Our kids (ages 7 and 5) loved climbing all over the ship and submarine. We will definitely do this again when passing through the area.
