Every visitor to SA must visit the Alamo...to go back in time and learn what the Texans did and the odds they faced and be able to walk in the area they fought is truly amazing...

This square that the Alamo fronts onto is often used for live music presentations but is a bit run down and can be a bit scary at night. The Alamo is there, but its not as impressive as you might think, just a big front wall of a mission. Most of the rest of the mission and its grounds are... More

Surprised because The Alamo always appears as a large mission building when, in fact, it's quite small and modest inside but wow, the history! It's located in the heart of the Riverwalk area surrounded by all these modern buildings and there it is! Worth the trip.

My family and I enjoyed our visit to the Alamo but it was very crowded and this made it difficult to see the exhibits. I would suggest going on a different day than a Saturday.

Very history related and very informative. There are lots to cover and you just take your time to see it all. Movies were very informative.

We feared this might be a tourist trap, but it was nothing of the kind. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated and deserved. The buildings, grounds, and displays are more than informative; they are moving.

Unfortunately, The Alamo was just closing when we had arrived, but a tour guide allowed us to linger behind a private tour to listen to the story. Lots of other activities to do in the immediate area as well. So if you're in San Antonio it's well worth the visit.

I seems like the history of the Alamo just pours out of the white walls. The whole park is filled with historical energy.

Very well kept with amazing grounds. If you like history you will love the Alamo. You can not visit San Antonio without seeing this.
