Get a sneak peek of the new Alamo Exhibit Hall & Collections Building in design renderings released today on theAlamo.org. The images depict an exciting new addition to the Alamo Complex with increased gallery space and ample room for interactive exhibits and learning opportunities.

This building will display the entire Phil Collins Collection, among other pieces from the Alamo Collection, in its 10,000 square feet of new exhibit space - five times more than the Alamo has today. The building opening on the Alamo grounds in 2022 will contact a state-of-the-art curatorial environment for the hundreds of historic items in the Alamo's possession.

The two-story, 24,000 square foot Exhibit Hall & Collections Building will be built on the grounds, to the east of the Gift Shop in the Alamo gardens. It has been prudently designed so its construction will not obstruct he breathtaking view of the Church from Alamo Plaza.

The Exhibit Hall is not a replacement for the upcoming Alamo Visitor Center and Museum, which is on track for a 2025 launch. The Phil Collins Collection will then be put on display in the museum and the Exhibit Hall will become home to additional traveling exhibits in order to further educate and engage visitors. A groundbreaking for the Exhibit Hall & Collections Building is scheduled for later this summer, with the grand opening set for summer 2022.

For information on the area where the Exhibit Hall & Collections Building will be built, and how it has been used in the past, please see this article by Kristi Miller Nichols, the Director of Archaeology, Collections, and Historical Research for the Alamo.
