Discover the origins of Mardi Gras.

Open since 2005; the Mobile Carnival Museum has displayed historical memorabilia and photographs to tell the story of Mardi Gras and Carnival tradition. There are over a dozen gallery rooms to see, plus a theater, den, and gift shop. Exhibits are switched out quarterly, so there is always something new to see at the museum. The museum is housed in a three-story historical building and has several exquisite chandeliers throughout. 

Since 1703, Mardi Gras has been observed at Mobile, Alabama. The first carnival parade in North America is believed to have begun in 1711. During the American Civil War and both World Wars, Mardi Gras traditions were put on hold, but they have kept the tradition alive for centuries. In 2004, the 100th carnival queen was crowned in Mobile, Alabama. The Mobile Carnival Museum is open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm. Admission rates are affordable at less than $10 per person. It is closed on all major federal holidays and allows guests to take self-guided tours at their own pace. This cultural museum is intriguing and great for anyone wanting to learn about Mardi Gras and Carnival celebrations.
