Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitors Center
When visiting the Gettysburg National Military Park, this should most certainly be your first stop.
The Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, off Baltimore Pike, provides guests with a museum experience covering the American Civil War, an impressive Cyclorama depicting the final battle, and a tour center with licensed certified guides.
At the Museum of the Civil War, your group can explore 22,000 square feet of exhibit space, the floors filled with relics of battle, interactive activities, and multimedia presentations. Learn all about the conflict of battle and its aftermath, as well as the personal stories of the soldiers themselves. Catch the 20-minute 'A New Birth of Freedom' film, narrated by Morgan Freedom, or head to the Gettysburg Cyclorama. This massive piece shows the 'final fury' of Pickett's Charge, a battle that took place right here.
For more in-depth information head to the onsite Resource Room or Bookstore. There is also a Refreshment Saloon onsite, with drinks and sandwiches served in a sort of Civil War soldier rest stop atmosphere. Reserve a battlefield tour or opt-in to take the free shuttle to Eisenhower National Historic site before you go!
