SAN ANTONIO, March 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Clark Construction, in a joint venture with Guido Construction, has delivered the new Alamo Collections Center. Alamo Trust, Inc. developed the project.
The two-story, 24,000 square-foot Alamo Collections Center, the newest construction on the Alamo grounds since the 1950s, will provide significant exhibition space to the historic site – expanding the current galleries by fivefold. Additionally, the new center will house state-of-the-art storage and conservation space for the Alamo Collection, ensuring proper care of objects over the long term.
Items from the Phil Collins Collection, the Donald and Louise Yena Spanish Colonial Collection, and the Alamo Collection will be displayed in the Alamo Collections Center until they can be shown in the new Visitor Center and Museum, which is anticipated to open in 2026. Once the Visitor Center and Museum is complete, the Alamo Collections Center will provide space for traveling exhibitions and other educational resources.
The Alamo Collections Center was prudently designed so that its construction would not obstruct the view of the iconic Alamo Church from Alamo Plaza. It opens to the public on Friday, March 3, 2023, at 12 p.m.
