The Collector's Journey

Experience the Collector's Journey in a state-of-the-art curatorial environment dedicated to preservation in the new Alamo Collections Center, opening to the public on Friday, March 3, 2023!

Get a sneak peek of the new Alamo Collections Center in these design renderings, an exciting new addition to the Alamo Complex with increased gallery space and ample room for interactive exhibits and learning opportunities. 

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

The Alamo Collections Center is not a replacement for the upcoming Alamo Visitor Center and Museum, which is on track for a 2026 launch. Once the museum opens, artifacts in the Collections Center will move and be put on display in the museum. The Collections Center will then become home to traveling exhibits to further educate and engage visitors. 

Follow Official Alamo on social media and this page for updates on the Collections Center as we get closer to the grand opening! Tickets are expected to be available in January 2023. Admission will be free for Friends of the Alamo members. Not a member?Join today to be invited to a sneak preview!
