History Where It Happened

The Mission Gate and Lunette outdoor interpretation represents the main gate of the historic mission-fort, and will open in 2023. This exhibit will establish the southern entrance to the fort through selective paving materials and interpretive graphics will mark the transition to a more reflective and contemplative zone, conveying a sense of reverence for the events that took place here.

The gate will be located between two other outdoor exhibits that opened in 2021, the 18 Pounder Losoya House exhibit and the Palisade exhibit. These outdoor exhibits help with one of the key goals of the Alamo Plan to allow visitors to better understand the original mission site and battlefield footprint.
