Mobile Museum of Art

Mobile, AL




The beautiful architecture of the Mobile Museum of Art, designed by The Architects Group, provides an exquisite setting for blockbuster exhibitions and the museum's permanent collection of more than 6,000 works of art. The new museum, completed in the spring of 2002, is the largest art museum along the Gulf Coast from New Orleans to Tampa.

The collection is strong in American art of the 1930s-40s, work by southern artists, art of the French Barbizon School, contemporary American crafts and late 19th century American art. The museum has holdings in Asian, African and European works as well. [1]

The Mobile Museum of Art is located at 4850 Museum Drive in Langan Park. For hours and fees please see the museum's website.
