Description

The Texas Liberty Forever! diorama is the largest depiction of its kind and serves as the centerpiece of the Battle of the Alamo Exhibit at the Hall of State. The re-creation of the besieged Alamo compound features 2,000 hand-painted figures poised in battle, just as combatants were on the morning of March 6, 1836. Painstakingly researched and exquisitely detailed, the diorama showcases every aspect of the legendary battle - from artillery pieces and wagons, to cattle, horses, fortresses, and topography, all represented in 1/54 scale. The exhibit, which opens in March 2022, offers a bird's eye view of history as it was unfolding - Colonel Romero's charge on the cattle corral, troops spilling over the northeast wall into the courtyard, defenders perched atop the Alamo Chapel, and many more action scenes that bring the battle to life.
