Battle For Texas: The Experience Tours

Battle For Texas: The Experience
Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and smells of the Battle of the Alamo at the interactive Battle For Texas: The Experience. Learn about the epic battle as it comes to life through multimedia reenactments and a comprehensive collection of artifacts related to the Alamo.
 
The Basics
Spanning 22,000 square feet (2,044 square meters), the experience features 11 thematic galleries that tell the story from both the Texan and Mexican perspectives, integrating more than 250 artifacts from the battle. You can design your own flag, explore inside Santa Anna’s tent, push a cannon up a ramp, and cross the famous line in the sand. At the end, add a photo of yourself into a digital mosaic of the Texas flag.
 
Visit the experience on its own, or combine it with the Alamo, located about a block away. Entry to the experience is included as part of some multi-attraction San Antonio sightseeing passes. Or combine the experience with a hop-on hop-off bus tour and a river cruise.
