Two of my boys had just finished studying the alamo in school so we planned a trip (6,10,13). Wonderful to put yourself right in the place they had just learned about. I also borrowed a few kid-friendly books and the recent most Alamo movie from the library for all of us to watch. I wouldn't take anyone younger than 6 as my youngest wasn't as interested in the actual Alamo and really only cared about the gift shop. Everyone however, really enjoyed the documentary film from the History channel. The wait to get in the Alamo and then for the movie wasn't bad as we went before lunch.
