About:-

The Mobile Carnival Museum opened in 2005 to rave reviews. The concept of a museum totally dedicated to Mardi Gras had been a goal of numerous native Mobilians for years. When the opportunity to lease the historic Bernstein-Bush house became available, the Mobile Carnival Association took the lead in securing the building lease and acquiring important and appropriate memorabilia and props. MCA coordinated a volunteer effort of historians, artists, lawyers, businessmen, architects, contractors, and seamstresses- just to name a few - who all gave of their time and talents to get the museum established. Families of monarchs donated royal robes, crowns and scepters. Members of local mystic organizations donated emblem costumes, favors, doubloons and such. The accumulation is beautifully displayed throughout the museum.

The museum offers 14 gallery rooms, a pictorial hallway, theater, den (social gathering area) and gift shop. In addition, the home is registered as a historic building and affords visitors the opportunity to enjoy detailed crown molding, pine floors and exquisite chandeliers
