Owner description: Established in 1718 as Mission San Antonio de Valero, for over 300 years the former mission now known as the Alamo has been a crossroads of history. Having existed under six flags of independent nations and served as a garrison for five different armies, the Alamo has a rich history and a heritage to inspire Texans and people around the world. Although the Alamo is best known as the site of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo, all 300 years of Alamo history are vital to our story. Visitors can take a guided battlefield tour, rent a self-guided audio tour, walk through the historic Alamo Church and Long Barrack Museum, listen to a history talk given by an Alamo Interpreter, participate in living history demonstrations, watch a documentary on the history of the Alamo, and much more. Admission to the Alamo is free, but there is a charge for guided and audio tours.

What a wonderful heritage to the US!!! It is unbelievable to walk on the grounds where the people fought to keep this land. Just outside the walls is a memorial built in memory of those heroes who died right there and were pilled up and burned. Freedom is not free. These people fought for what they believed in. God bless America.

a must see place in San Antonio, the mission is well maintained and the museum is easy to walk through and interesting, the entrance is also free (one of the few free attractions in San Antonio) so you can have some cash to spend in the gift shop.

The movie gave the remains of the Alamo fort a lot more depth and really brought it to life. The exhibit is in impressive condition considering the battle fought there and the vast amount of blood shed. It is an amazing historic site.

Although you can pay for extra services (photo ops, guided tour, interpretive headphones, etc.), visits to The Alamo, are free and open to the public.

Worth the price. But, it needs to include the entire Missions Trail and the Missions in the history with improved signage for direction and the history of those Missions.
