    Visit: GulfQuest - National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico, 155 S Water St 175 1750 Shelton Beach Road, Mobile, AL 36602-3710

    GulfQuest Maritime Museum is the world's only maritime museum dedicated to the historical, cultural and economic significance of the Gulf of Mexico. Located on the river front in downtown Mobile, Alabama, GulfQuest is one of the only interactive maritime museums in the United States. This amazing museum has an educational focus with hands-on exhibits that feature hurricanes, shipwrecks, offshore drilling, sailing, and so much more.  We also have theaters, simulators and displays that will keep you busy throughout. 

    Within our state-of-the-Art museum, you will experience a panoramic pilot simulator identical to those used to train professional boat pilots. Visitors choose a vessel and try their way in navigating through the Gulf and into Mobile's port. The images displayed in this simulator are designed to represent real locations along the Port of Mobile. Then there is The Great Gulf Challenge an interactive game where visitors take on leadership roles to help restore the delicate balance of the Gulf of Mexico through environmental and economic choices while facing realistic disasters. Ocean Planet Theater GulfQuest's Science on a Sphere, a six-foot diameter planet Earth suspended in midair showing three-dimensional visualizations of Earth, hurricanes, global shipping traffic, and much more.

    From the foyer with its topographical map of sunken vessels to the bridge simulator, this place has something for everyone. Try your hand at loading a container on a ship or maneuver a tug and barge. This place is full of challenges!! Plan to spend several hours.
