If you’ve seen the Alamo on social media or the news lately, you may have noticed several fenced areas in the plaza surrounding the iconic Alamo Church. At first glance, whether you’re already at the plaza or planning a summer trip, you may think this construction will impede your visit. Rest assured, the Alamo is still open and your visit will be the one-of-a-kind experience you expected.
The reason for this construction: to make the site safer and more secure for visitors like yourself. To do this, we are installing 3-foot-tall security bollards, each spaced 4-feet-apart for ease of accessibility.
As always, the Alamo is free and open to the public during our normal business hours.
You can access the Alamo by foot through the north corner by the Cenotaph, from the south end by Valero Plaza coming from The Menger Hotel, and from Alamo Street. On the map below, you can see the entryways to the Alamo, as well as the fenced work areas. However, the fenced areas are expected to shrink, upon final assessment this week of actual space needed for construction.
