The Alamo is excited to host families for a free, sensory-friendly evening that includes space modifications so that everyone can explore the history and wonder of the Shrine of Texas Liberty.
Visitors of all ages with varying sensitivity needs can join us after hours Tuesday, July 18, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. In addition to going inside the Alamo Church, Long Barrack, and Ralston Family Collections Center, guests will have the opportunity to participate in sensory-friendly stations about archaeology, textiles, limestone, how to fire a musket, and more. Modifications will include a less-crowded environment, light and sound reduction, and designated quiet areas.
The Alamo holds a Sensory Inclusive certification from KultureCity, a nationally-recognized group dedicated to ensuring people with sensory disabilities never miss out on special events, experiences and dreams. A KultureCity information station will be on site for this sensory-friendly evening.
While the event is free for families, capacity is limited and advanced registration is required.
