The History Shop, located across the street from the Alamo, just off the north wall, began its operation in 1995, specializing in the restoration of historical and family documents, books, Bibles and maps. We truly enjoy providing this service and are the only such business in south Texas!
Today, The History Shop of San Antonio LLC, has grown to be an establised retail store offering competitive prices on antique maps, weapons (pre 1900), and Texana books. These antique items are in great condition, perfect for gifts or to display in any home or office. In addition to the varied services and low prices, The History Shop is also home to the Alamo Diorama Sound and Light Show, which is owned and narrated by rock star, Phil Collins. The Diorama arrived in 2008, along with an archaeological dig (over the northeastern part of the battle site) where visitors can look down and see cannon balls still embedded, Spanish Colonial pottery, horseshoes, musket balls and more.
