Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center of Mobile,AL

Upcoming Exhibits


Aug 2018





September 11 – October 14    

The Mobile Delta region is home to one of the most bio-diverse areas of our country. Our local environment creates a spectacular backdrop for a significant population of coastal and inland birds. These populations are further enhanced seasonally, by the Mobile area’s placement near the major Mississippi Flyway, giving our local community a unique opportunity to encounter a rich diversity of avian species throughout the year.

This exhibit will highlight native species and migratory visitors to the region through an immersive exhibition of photography, hands on experiences, and a slate of educational programming of relevance to Gulf Coast Region.






September 22, 2018 – January 6, 2019    

The Animation Academy (previously named “Get Animated”) explores the unique world of animation, from traditional hand-drawn cels to exciting breakthroughs in stop-motion and CGI. Stage Nine Exhibitions proudly welcomes involvement from major US animation studios.

Visitors can create their own stop-motion animated short, learn about the art of storyboarding, go behind the scenes with artists and animators, and enjoy America’s largest 3D zoetrope.

Each display and interactive activity features the participation of industry leaders, from original hand-drawn cells to real stop-motion maquettes. Click here for a behind-the-scenes in-depth video on the exhibit.
