Starting today, visitors to the Alamo will immerse themselves in the storied history of the 300-year site with the launch of a brand-new Victory or Death audio tour, narrated by country music singer, songwriter, actor and nine-time Grammy Award®-winner, Ray Benson from Asleep At The Wheel.

The new audio tour includes 9 additional stops from the previous version, for a total of 37 stops around the historic Alamo grounds.

Benson's trusted voice tells the full 300-year history of the site, from its humble beginnings as a Spanish Mission, to its pivotal role in the Texas Revolution during the 1836 Battle of the Alamo, then later its use as a Quartermaster Depot by the U.S. Army, and finally its recognition as a Texas treasure worth saving as a memorial and historic site.

Expert voices are woven throughout the tour to provide listeners with the full tapestry of historic research and conservation efforts. Those featured voices include the Alamo's own experienced experts as well as British musician Phil Collins, a world-renowned collector of Alamo artifacts who generously donated his collection to the State of Texas in 2014.

The new Victory or Death audio tour experience is now available in English, Spanish, German, French, and Chinese.

Audio tours cost $10. Discounts are available for Friends of the Alamo members, military members, first responders and senior citizens.

Guests can also purchase the audio tour with admission to the Alamo Exhibit at the Ralston Family Collections Center for the complete self-guided experience. This package costs $20 for adults and $18 for children aged 12 and under.
