Making the Alamo Accessible

The Alamo is committed to making its historic site accessible, whatever your access needs.


Restrooms are Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant and can be found at the back of the grounds near the covered arbor area. Please ask any Alamo employee for direction, if needed.

Accessible water fountains are located near the restrooms.

Services for Visitors with Mobility-Related Access Needs

The original flagstone floors are uneven in some areas. Visitors are encouraged to use caution when moving through historic structures, whether on foot or in wheeled chairs or scooters.

The original Church building has only one wheeled access doorway. Please use the front door for entrance and egress. A staff member is stationed nearby to assist.

We are not offering wheelchairs for rental at this time due to COVID-19.
