Travel back in time to the location of great historical importance that no one in Texas or the United States should ever forget. The Alamo is now offering educational tours and unique experiences suitable for the whole family. You get the expertise of a knowledgeable guide that can share what happened all those years ago in an interesting and engaging way. You can also take a self-guided tour with audio files to help you understand the importance of every exhibit.
The Alamo offers special opportunities for the youngest visitors to have a hands-on experience that helps bring history to life. Costumed reenactors help on the tours and answer plenty of questions. Your child can hold a wooden replica rifle and gearbox, and everyone can enjoy viewing a canon drill just as it would have been done all those years ago.
For a smooth experience, the Alamo currently requires reservations to limit the number of people coming to this historical site in Texas. The church experience only allows 100 people inside at a time with a thirty-minute window to explore and soak in the atmosphere. The grounds surrounding the original buildings are quite extensive and offer the opportunity to walk through the gardens, view monuments, and soak in the ambience of this important site that plays such a vital role in Texas history.
There is always something else to do around every corner. Enjoy a historical documentary in the Arbor. Feels the thrill of a musket firing demonstration. The Alamo also offers multiple military-themed ceremonies and rides about the year for honored members of every branch. Other options include summer programs specifically designed for students, temporary collection displays from historian Phil Collins, a Lego brick “Battle of the Alamo” creation, and special programs for the Christmas holiday.
