Learn about the fierce Battle of the Alamo and pay your respects to those lost during the Texan Revolution at this historical complex.

Walk through a moving tribute to Texan resistance fighters as you learn about the turbulent history of 19th-century America. For many Texans, the Alamo is a symbol of the bravery and determination shown by a small band of Texan soldiers during the Battle of the Alamo. Discover fascinating museum exhibits, visit the restored church and admire the peaceful memorial garden.

The Alamo began as a Roman Catholic mission before it was used as a fortress compound during the Mexican War of Independence. Join a guided tour of the complex for a comprehensive look at the events that took place at the Alamo. Move around the grounds on a battlefield tour to learn about one of the most pivotal moments in the Texan Revolution. An audio tour is also available for those wanting to explore the complex at their own pace.

After your tour, head to the museum housed inside the Low Barrack building. As the oldest remaining building on the site, the Low Barrack is fascinating in itself but the memorabilia, weaponry and interactive A Story Bigger than Texas exhibit reveals another side to The Alamo’s history.

Pay your respects at the restored church where much of the Battle of Alamo was fought. Read the names of the soldiers displayed as a shrine. The church is an excellent example of early Spanish architecture in the region. Admire the Alamo Gardens, a lush memorial park where you can reflect on those who lost their lives at the Alamo.

The Alamo is located in downtown San Antonio and is best reached by car or bus. Metered parking is available in the streets surrounding the complex. The Alamo is closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Admission is free but guided and audio tours incur a small fee.
