More than 2.5 million people a year visit the 4.2-acre complex known worldwide as “The Alamo.” Most come to see the old mission where a small band of Texans held out for thirteen days against the Centralist army of General Antonio López de Santa Anna. Although the Alamo fell in the early morning hours of March 6, 1836, the death of the Alamo Defenders has come to symbolize courage and sacrifice for the cause of Liberty. The memories of James Bowie, David Crockett, and William B. Travis are as powerful today as when the Texan Army under Sam Houston shouted “Remember the Alamo!” as it routed Santa Anna at the battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.

The Alamo has been managed by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas since 1905. The Alamo represents nearly 300 years of history. Three buildings - the Shrine, Long Barrack Museum and Gift Museum - house exhibits on the Texas Revolution and Texas History. Visitors may stroll through the beautiful Alamo Gardens.

Rescue 3D: Ride with Heroes

Admission to the MEGA Theater is free with your paid admission to the Ship!

Scale Model Gallery

Warbirds & Warships

over 370 pieces on display, this is the largest publicly exhibited model collection in Texas.

Nicknamed “The Blue Ghost”, The USS Lexington is an Essex-class aircraft carrier built during World War II for the United States Navy. Originally intended to be named Cabot, word arrived during construction that the USS Lexington (CV-2) had been lost in the Battle of the Coral Sea. She was renamed while under construction to commemorate the earlier ship. This ship was the fifth U.S. Navy ship to bear the name in honor of the Revolutionary War Battle of Lexington.

On June 15, 1992, the ship was donated as a museum and now operates as the USS Lexington Museum on the bay in Corpus Christi, Texas. A MEGAtheater (similar to IMAX) was added in the forward aircraft elevator space. Lexington was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2003. The ship is carefully maintained, and areas of the ship previously off-limits are becoming open to the public every few years.
