The quadrangle is closed to the public unless you know someone that knows someone as there were tourists when we got there but we were not allowed in. I was sad and disappointed as we served here 24 years ago and wanted to remember old times. There were deer and peacocks and we had brought food but they couldn’t come :(.

This was a beautiful experience and very peaceful atmosphere overall. Once you enter, you feel very calm and can see the history here. They also have a museum on the right side with a very informative tour. The director is very knowledgeable and loves her job. They are very good at preserving the grounds and history here. Plus the animals add to the peace. I was able to walk around after the tour just to enjoy the scenery. It was free admissions and you can always give donations.

This is a truely underated gem of San Antonio. Besides being an important landmark with a rich and storied history, Historic Fort Sam Houston is a breathtakingly beautiful sanctuary where gentle deer and peacocks roam free as people go about their business. You can take a walk through the museum to learn the history of the fort and see everything from authentic uniforms to antique firearms and even a short film, should you choose to watch it. From the museum, bags of feed are available to feed the deer and peacocks as you walk the grounds. You can snap a picture in front of the clock tower where, as legend has it, Geronimo was once held prisoner. This is also a great location for a small picnic. Historic Fort Sam Houston is operated and maintained jointly by the US Army and US Air Force however, it is still open to the public, and entrance to both the fort and the museum is 100% FREE, the only thing that costs any money is the animal feed which is only a few dollars. Historic Fort S...
