This is a special place. The broad plaza, the ancient trees, the quiet tone. Makes one reflect. The fact that it's not commercialised in anyway adds to it's appeal hugely. Well laid out, great displays and informative recreations. You get a comprehensive self guided walking tour with headphones and commentary to complete the experience. It will take you an hour...

It is so amazing to stand on this ground. Take the time to visit this great historical place. If you do please remember to be respectful. Take off your hats keep volume to a minimum and really reflect on those that fought and died here. Catch one of the history talks if you can they are free and informational. Although... More

When you enter the building you are hit with the feeling that they are still there. No one was talking much above a whisper. The grounds are beautiful and the place is one everyone should see. And the town is so full of things to do. We spent a week there and this was our second trip.

I've been many times since I came to Texas in 1990. Details and who runs it have changed. It is still treated as a holy chapel just inside the door we all recognize.(Gents take your hats off) Further in, are shops, and displays, and historic troop accommodations. The remnants are just a small part, the chapel area of the much... More

The Alamo was both disappointing as well as very historical. My preconceived notion was that this was a larger place than it was when seen. The history and artifacts there more than made up for the lack of size.

This "sacred ground" is so interesting and inspirational. It's a must see for everyone. It's now right down town, not out in the boondocks like it was in the 1800's; so the juxtaposition is oddly unsettling. Be sure to spend time reading the inscriptions on the monuments. No hats allowed inside, gentlemen. We Texans show respect for the heroes who... More
