The Alamo is happy to announce the launch of a brand new, living historybased tour called, “Weapons of the Alamo.”

This will be the first living history-based tour at the Alamo. The Weapons of the Alamo tour will teach visitors about the weapons wielded by Crockett, Esparza, and all the Alamo defenders. Led by an Alamo Living Historian, dressed in 19th century attire, this hour-long tour will unpack the mechanics, use, and importance of rifles, muskets and cannons during the 1836 Battle of the Alamo. Visitors will learn how to load a flintlock firearm, the location and size of the Alamo’s cannons, and much more.

“This tour will give visitors a better sense of what the defenders went through,” Angela Wolfgram said, Director of Living History at the Alamo. “It will offer something for everyone, including those who know very little about the Alamo and history enthusiasts,” she added.

The Weapons of the Alamo tour will take place daily at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., starting May 13. Visitors can purchase tickets for the tour at the Alamo Welcome Center or online at thealamo.org. Tickets will cost $15.
