Visitors to the Alamo March 2 through April 24 will be able to see another glimpse of a selection of priceless artifacts graciously gifted to the State of Texas by musician and historian, Phil Collins. There are more than 400 items in this collection, and we are very grateful to Mr. Collins for his generosity beyond compare! This selection of artifacts focuses on the types of supplies that were used during the Texas Revolution.
While there are more than 400 items in this collection, the Phil Collins Collection Preview - Supplies for War includes a receipt for a horse from William B. Travis to John B. Johnson dated January 20, 1836, a letter from Stephen F. Austin to Adjunct General Hall and Colonel Grayson requesting reinforcements dated November 4, 1835, a Mexican light cavalry officer’s sword and scabbard, and more precious historic artifacts from the 1836 Battle of the Alamo carefully selected and added to the Phil Collins Collection over the years.
The Phil Collins Collection Preview - Supplies for War will be available in the Alamo Exhibit Hall on the Alamo grounds. Entry to the Alamo Exhibit is $5/person ($4/miltiary) and tickets can be purchased onsite. Access is included for visitors who purchase an audio tour. Please note you can only reserve an audio tour online if you first have a free timed entry ticket to the church. Be sure to first reserve your ticket to the church, and then add an audio tour. Entry will be free for the public on Texas Independence Day, March 2, and will remain free for all members of Friends of the Alamo.
