Great history. What makes Texas, Texas. "Come and Take It" says it all. Missed Bella The Alamo Cat, would have loved to meet her. A must see in SA. Nice gift shop as well. Saw an Alamo movie on the Imax at River Center mall just before going there. Really brought home the history and what it means to us.

Plaza is a great place to rest under a tree and watch families take pictures. There were no crowds, but a generous flow of people. Lots of room for kids to enjoy letting loose in front of the museum. A must see for every Texan or Texas transplant.

I think everyone around the world has heard of "The Alamo" so we were looking forward to the visit & it didn't let us down. Important part of American history greatly respected & preserved. Well done San Antonio.

We went here with the kids because my husband is a history geek. We didn't stay long, the kids were creeped out by the fact you weren't allowed to talk inside the building (sorry its just a building, yeah people died there and there is a reverence but little kids want to ask questions) and there isn't much to see....

I’m sure there are already lots of reviews for the Alamo. After all, it’s the Alamo! Growing up in Texas, I have visited at least three or four times. However, returning to the Alamo as an adult, with my wife and in-laws, was a very enriching experience. So, even if you have visited several times over the years, I highly... More

I was able to cross this one off my bucket list. I could feel the history just being near the old structure. It was great to see the place that I had read so much about. I would recommend any history buff to get there at least once.

It really is smaller than I thought it would be and it was very crowded when I went there, but the experience was very nice and I could learn a lot from it. It's not very big so it won't take too long and the gift shop is worth checking.
