About Battle for Texas

Battle for Texas: The Experience bring the story of the Alamo to life like never before. Part museum, part adventure. This unprecedented attraction is located just 100 yards from the grounds of the Alamo and is designed to be enjoyed by the whole family. Named one of the top 100 things to in San Antonio by TripAdvisor, reviewers have called this attraction a "Texas history hands-on experience" and "a fascinating 360 [degree] picture of Texas history".

In 1836, about 150 men fighting for Texas's independence from Mexico took on Generalissimo Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna and thousands of his soldiers during the event now known as the Battle of the Alamo. Battle for Texas immerses visitors in this epic 13-day battle through a combination of artifacts and multimedia re-enactments. Here's a closer look at how Battle for Texas helps visitors remember the Alamo:

  • It has a collection of historically significant artifacts. Battle for Texas displays more than 250 artifacts from the battle, including Santa Anna's uniform, Bowie knives created by militia commander James Bowie, and a long knife owned by former congressman Davy Crockett, who led a force of Tennessee volunteers.

  • It presents both side's perspectives. Battle for Texas not only shows visitors what the Texas militiamen were fighting for, but also what the Mexican army was fighting for, offering a more balanced take on the historic event.

  • It immerses people in the sights, sounds, and smells of the era. Battle for Texas hopes visitors experience the Alamo fight "in a personal and visceral way," so visitors walk through 11 galleries that tell the entire story of the battle. They stroll through Santa Anna's tent, roll a cannon up a ramp, and even smell gunpowder in the air as they explore the 22,000-square-foot attraction in Rivercenter Mall.
