The Alamo is excited to announce a call for pop culture items to be included in the Alamo's Visitor Center and Museum, scheduled to open in 2027. We are seeking donations of commemorative artifacts and memorabilia related to the Alamo from the period after 1945, to be featured in our dedicated Pop Culture gallery.

The Alamo has been a source of inspiration in various media, including movies, television shows, literature, and more. We aim to create a vibrant and engaging gallery that reflects the Alamo’s enduring influence on popular culture. Items such as movie posters and props, toys, books, comics, games, lunch boxes, and other objects depicting the Alamo are of particular interest.

Everyone from Presidents to the Pope to rock stars has visited the Alamo, drawing crowds and creating countless photo opportunities now stored in family photo collections. If you have photos capturing these memorable visits, we would love to see them and add to our collection!

Those interested in donating can visit our website for more information on how to submit items for consideration.

All donors will be recognized on the Alamo’s website, and possible recognition in the Alamo Museum. Donors may also benefit from tax deductions.
For further inquiries or assistance with donations, please visit our website or contact the Alamo's Collections Team directly at
