Colonial Fort Condé

The History Musuem of Mobile also operates Colonial Fort Condé located at 150 South Royal Street. 

The original Fort Condé was built in 1723 by French explorers. Under various colonial powers, it went by different names, including Fort Louis, Fort Charlotte, and Fuerta Carlota. The extant remnants of the original fort, discovered during the construction of the Wallace Tunnel in 1966, may be seen in Mardi Gras Park, facing Church Street.  The replica fort was opened in 1976, as part of the nation’s bicentennial celebration. About one-third of the Fort was reconstructed, and at a four-fifths scale.


Admission to Fort Condé is included in your admission to the History Museum of Mobile. Hours of operation are Monday - Saturday 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
