The Alamo Collections Center is Almost Here
Just before Thanksgiving, I had the honor of attending and speaking at the Sneak Preview event for the Alamo Collections Center. This facility is the first building developed as part of the Alamo Plan, which will at long last, allow for our state's most famous landmark to be appropriately honored and protected for future generations of Texans. I can't wait for this facility to officially open to the public on March 3, 2023.
This Sneak Preview event allowed us to celebrate a tremendous step forward in our sacred duty to preserve our State’s most cherished symbol of freedom and independence. The Alamo and the legacy of its courageous defenders, who laid down their lives in the name of liberty, continue to be the backbone of the strong principles that have guided Texans for generations. The new Exhibition Hall & Collections Building will help Texans immerse themselves in the rich history of the Alamo while surrounded by its most precious artifacts, and I look forward to the endless educational opportunities this new addition will bring to all who visit.
The Alamo Collections Center will provide 10,000 square feet of exhibition space, more than five times the current amount. This new building will also house storage and conservation space for the Alamo Collection in order to ensure proper long-term care of objects and artifacts.
In addition to the Collections Center, I'm also very excited for the new Visitor Center and Museum, which is expected to open in 2026. I hope you're looking forward to these exciting changes that will preserve the Alamo and help share its stories for generations to come.
