The Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center was designed and built in 2008 to provide a proper and permanent home for the Gettysburg National Military Park’s collection of Civil War artifacts. It also provides a comfortable environment from which visitors can learn about the sacrifices made during the Battle of Gettysburg and the causes and the consequences of the American Civil War.
The Museum and Visitor Center at Gettysburg National Military Park is the best place to start your visit to Gettysburg. Here you will find the National Park Service Information Desk, Visitor Center activities, ticket sales, Museum Bookstore, Refreshment Saloon and restrooms.
The Visitor Center features activities that provide an excellent introduction to the Battle of Gettysburg and will prepare you for a tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. The Film and Cyclorama includes A New Birth of Freedom, a film narrated by Morgan Freeman and sponsored by The History Channel, and the Cyclorama, the nation’s largest painting that places visitors in the fury of Pickett’s Charge on the third day of the battle. The Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War has 11 exhibit galleries featuring Gettysburg National Military Park artifacts and interactive displays and the Gilder Lehrman Institute Special Exhibits Gallery.
