Since the days of the Texas Republic, Texans and history fans alike have collected historical artifacts that tell the storied history of this great state.
In fact, in the summer of 2014 British rock star Phil Collins generously donated his priceless collection of Texana artifacts to the Texas General Land Office, guardian of the Alamo on behalf of the people of Texas.
Since 2014, the Phil Collins Texana Collecition has been archivally boxed, photographed, cataloged, studied and properly storied in the Alamo’s state-of-the-art museum storage vault.
With the artifacts in hand, the Alamo has set out to build a first-of-its kind, world-class Museum and Visitor Center to house the artifacts and tell the story of the Alamo and the Battle of 1836.
The Museum will be funded through over $150 million in philanthropic donations. The Alamo Museum and Visitors Center is expected by be under schematic design by fall of 2020, with a target completion of 2024 (subject to change).
