PLEASE READ: Condé-Charlotte Museum has re-opened: Tuesday – Saturday, 11 a.m. – 3: 30 p.m.; we are closed Sunday and Monday.

No reservation is needed, but we do ask that you bring your mask. We’ll provide the entertainment!

Near the banks of the Mobile River, the Condé-Charlotte Museum began its life as Mobile’s first courthouse and jail, eventually becoming the beloved home of the Kirkbride family. It now stands as a historic house museum, full of antiques and period furnishings, which reflect Mobile’s history under five flags: French, English, Spanish, Confederate and American.

Let our guides lead you through the area’s complex history under its various European sovereigns, its entry into the American territory, and its position as a Confederate city under Union siege during the Civil War.

The Condé-Charlotte Museum is owned, preserved and operated by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Alabama.
