About Us

The Gulf Coast Exploreum's mission is to promote science literacy among the residents of the Gulf Coast region.

By sparking imagination, creating curiosity and instilling a sense of wonder in the world, the Exploreum has been a cornerstone of informal learning on the Gulf Coast since its inception more than 30 years ago. With the continued support of the community – visionary civic leaders, generous donors, contributing members and volunteers – the Exploreum is able to bring the world of science to the Gulf Coast.

In addition to fulfilling its worthwhile mission, the Exploreum actively contributes to Mobile by stimulating economic growth in the area. According to recent studies, in 2005 the Exploreum generated an economic impact totaling $12 to $15 million during the international traveling exhibit The Dead Sea Scrolls – a figure that benefits the city, the county, and multiple education and tourism partners, including schools, hotels, restaurants and area attractions. In 2008, the Exploreum hosted OUR BODY: The Universe Within, which had visitors from all 50 states and 24 countries and a nearly $7 million economic impact.
