Visitors can once again enter the hallowed Alamo church starting today.
Officials announced a new timed-ticket system, which will allow visitors to practice social distancing while inside the church. Today marks the first time the church is being reopened to the public since March, when it was closed at the start of the pandemic.
Touring the inside of the Alamo remains free. Tickets can be reserved at tickets.thealamo.org/events by clicking on “Alamo Free Timed Entry.”
Up to 50 people will be allowed inside the church at any given time at 30-minute intervals, Alamo spokesman Kevin Femmel said.
The grounds reopened two weeks ago, after being closed March 16, and do not require a ticket and have no time limit.
Face coverings are also required while on Alamo property. Hours are 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. daily.
