Everyone should visit the Alamo and learn the story of Texas Independence and hear the stories of the participants in this epic struggle for Texas and Liberty. The Long Barracks has been converted into a beautiful museum containing priceless relics of the battle. It gave me chills to read the stories and think about the price paid by our ancestors for the freedoms we take for granted every day. After visiting the Alamo, you'll look at Texas with great admiration.

I was thrilled to see this piece of history because I've heard so much about it through my life time. I guess my expectations were set high. There is not much to see here. The Alamo is much smaller than I ever would have imagined. There are some interesting artifacts inside donated by the families of Crockett and Bowie. Those were fun to see. The grounds are beautiful and a nice place to sit and reflect. There was a gentleman talking inside to a group but we couldn't hear him for all the noise other people were making. Outside are earphone tours you can purchase but we didn't do that.

The admission is free but you can purchase the informative tours and a photographer takes your photo in front of the building. You get a card with your photo number on it and you can view it online and purchase it. Our number was incorrect but I sent a note to the website on the card and they told me how I could find it. I was able to find it.

This is a must see just because it's part of our history.

Take the time to drag yourself away from all the fun and gaiety of the Riverwalk area to visit these hallowed grounds. Take your time to walk through and read all the displays. Your children need to know about the sacrifices that were made and the heavy toll that was paid by so many brave souls.

The movies don't do the story justice as there is so much more to tell.
200 vs 6000
"Come and take it"
The 200 dead were burned and not buried.....
The Travis letter....

Come see it and you will NOT be disappointed.
