Is a ticket necessary to enter the church?

While entry to the Alamo Church is free, guests must obtain a reserved ticket for a seamless experience. You can reserve your free entry ticket here or at the Alamo Welcome Center.

How long does it take to tour the Alamo grounds?

The duration of a tour of the Alamo is subject to each guest's preferences and pace. Generally, one can explore the Alamo Church and grounds in roughly 30 minutes to an hour, though plan on more time if participating in other tours and experiences.

Are pets allowed on the premises?

The Alamo has a unique set of rules befitting its status as the Shrine of Texas Liberty and hallowed ground. To provide a safe and reverent atmosphere as well as preservation of historic structures for generations to come, we do not allow pets on Alamo grounds or in any of our buildings.

Trained service animals as defined under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) are always welcome and are permitted to enter the Alamo grounds as well as historic buildings with their handlers. The Alamo's Service Animals Policy can be found here.

Is the Alamo accessible for people with disabilities?

Yes, the Alamo Church, Long Barrack, and Gift Shop are accessible to guests with disabilities. The Church’s exit does have stairs and staff will happily open the front door to assist wheelchairs, mobility scooters, and some strollers with exiting.
