The national park rangers provide a very interesting and complete tour of the mission. It did a great job at putting these missions in perspective. I recommend visiting this one before the Alamo. The tour is free and much more complete.

The Mission San Jose was an amazing example of a Spanish Mission and the mostly restored buildings, church and walls was quite the view. We took a free tour with a park ranger that lasted 45 minutes. I found the tour to be extremely insightful...More

It's free to tour the grounds, but they do ask for a donation of $1 to enter the church.
