They have done a great job with the exhibits to educate visitors on the timeline and ramifications of various events and battles. We especially enjoyed the church.

Not to be missed, Fort Alamo is the cradle of Texas. It’s a short visit since the mission church is so small, but the entire fort area is well worth a look and remember how a handful of Texians fought for their ideals.
