The Mobile Museum of Art (MMofA) includes a permanent collection of close to 6,000 works of fine and decorative arts from America, Asia, and Europe. This collection spans periods from classical antiquity to the present day. MMofA is supported by a unique public/private partnership of city and community support. Its facility is owned by the city of Mobile, and the art collection is privately owned.

Founded in 1964, MMofA has grown from a modest initiative of The Board of Commissioners of the City of Mobile, and two private arts entities, the Allied Arts Council, and the Mobile Arts Association, to the only accredited art museum in southern Alabama. For more about the full history of MMofA, go to our About section>>
