The Alamo Joins the San Antonio CityPASS Program


San Antonio (March 6, 2024) — As of March 1, admission to The Alamo’s – Exhibit and Church is now included in San Antonio CityPASS® tickets. CityPASS tickets, the first-ever bundled attraction tickets in North America, offer substantial discounts on combined admission to iconic attractions in 16 North American destinations. The Alamo, part of Texas' only UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Lone Star State's top tourist destination, is a fantastic addition to the already impressive San Antonio CityPASS lineup of attractions.

Renowned worldwide for its significant role in American history, the Alamo offers a unique and immersive journey through 300 years of history. While first established as a Spanish mission in the 1700’s, the Alamo is best known as the site of a tragic battle during Texas’ quest for independence from Mexico. It was during this 1836 Siege of The Alamo by Mexican General Santa Anna that every last Texas defender, including famed frontiersmen David Crockett, William B. Travis and James Bowie, perished while fighting for freedom. That tragic event transformed the site into a sacred place to which travelers have paid homage for nearly 200 years.

One of the most iconic of the historical buildings at the Alamo is the Church, dating back to the site’s Spanish Mission era. The Long Barrack, located near the cherished Alamo Church, houses exhibits detailing the Alamo’s history and the events leading up to the famed Battle of the Alamo. Visitors can engage in interactive demonstrations of early 19th–century daily life, military drills and other activities in the Living History Encampment.

While entry to the Alamo grounds and Church is always free to the public, admission is charged for the Alamo Exhibit located inside the Ralston Family Collections Center. San Antonio CityPASS tickets cover this admission fee.

The Alamo Exhibit offers a state-of-the-art curatorial environment dedicated to the preservation of the Alamo. Here, visitors can view priceless artifacts gifted to the State of Texas by musician and historian Phil Collins (yes, that Phil Collins!), including the Battle of the Alamo Diorama featuring his narration. Additional period pieces are showcased in the Donald and Louise Yena Spanish Colonial Collection among the many displays and interactive exhibits.

“We are excited to welcome The Alamo to the San Antonio CityPASS program,” said Megan Allen, CEO of City Pass Inc. “This addition enhances our commitment to providing visitors with a curated way to experience the best that San Antonio has to offer. The Alamo's historical significance makes it a perfect fit for CityPASS, and we look forward to sharing this iconic site with our customers.”
