I wouldn’t ordinarily recommend a simulation over the real historic deal, but this re-creation of the Alamo personalities and battle enhances a visit to the famous mission and battle ground, about half a block away. It also helps that genuine artifacts from the Alamo—250 pieces, including some belonging to Mexican General Santa Anna—are on display here. You get the idea of how the immersion works if you’ve seen the movie Night at the Museum—and, indeed, a rousing nighttime adventure at Battle for Texas is named for the film.
