The Alamo allowing visitors inside for first time since March

On August 20th the Alamo grounds reopened to the public. Now, Thursday, September 3 marks the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 shutdown marks the first time that tourists will be allowed inside the iconic church.

“We are inviting people to remember the Alamo, we are ready to welcome you back,” said Alamo Sheila Mayfield, the Marketing Director.

Admission is still free but the ways to get in have changed. Visitors will have to visit TheAlamo.org and obtain a time slot ticket for entry. This helps spread out visitors to help with social distancing.

“You can make a reservation in advance, know the day and the time of your spot, not have to wait, and you can either print out the ticket or show it, if you got it on your phone, and we ask guests to come 10 minutes prior to their scheduled time,” said Mayfield.
