We were encouraged to visit the other missions in San Antonio on our visit. This was the first visit we made and were very impressed by how well preserved the mission is. While there are no tours available, there is a park ranger on site to help answer any questions you may have. I would encourage you to visit the other missions, as they are only 3 miles or 4.8 km apart. The mission still holds services and reverence is encouraged. There are several educational plaques around the mission to provide further insight into the grand old mission.
They have restored some of the interior glory this mission once provided to patrons. Upon gazing at the splendid colors, you will occasionally see a "dull" color on the wall. This is the original structure that has been left un-restored to provide a glimpse of what it looked like back when the mission was first built.
The restrooms are by the visitor's center.
