|Welcome to Gettysburg, the most famous small town in America, where many believe our nation
was saved. Gettysburg offers a small town atmosphere with unique shops, museums, and fine
dining, as well as easy access to the area’s other significant attractions. With a population of
nearly 7,500, Gettysburg offers a sophisticated and varied adventure. The Borough of Gettysburg
has maintained and restored the town’s historic architecture, and our charming downtown hosts
more than 100 stores and restaurants, as well as an abundance of bed-and-breakfasts and hotels.
The historic town of Gettysburg is located south of Exit 17 on the Pennsylvania
Turnpike, at the crossroads of U. S. Routes 15 and 30.
Additionally, there is a 48 store outlet mall just off Route 15.
Whether in the borough of Gettysburg or not, Adams County has something for
every member of the family.

Service and its partner, the Gettysburg Foundation, is to provide each and every visitor with a
quality experience while visiting the Museum and Visitor Center, walking in the Soldiers'
National Cemetery where President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous Gettysburg
Address,and while touring the battlefield park.
There are a number of suggestions we can offer to help you map out the time you will spend at
the park and the basic information on this page will guide you in planning your visit. We
encourage you to explore our other web pages, especially Things to Do and Things to Know
Before You Come as these provide up to date information on park events and programs that will
be of interest.
Where should we begin our visit to the park?
Begin your visit at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, 1195
Baltimore Pike, Gettysburg, where the park offers free information, an extensive museum about
Gettysburg and the Civil War, the fully restored Gettysburg Cyclorama that dramatically depicts
"Pickett's Charge", and the film "A New Birth of Freedom", narrated by award-winning actor
Morgan Freeman, which focuses on the
significance of Gettysburg. There is an entry fee for admission to the museum, film and
Gettysburg Cyclorama. The center also provides information on the numerous ways to tour the
battlefield park including the Licensed Battlefield Guide service, an expansive bookstore
managed by Event Network, Inc., and a refreshment saloon that offers snacks, sandwiches and
drinks in a Civil War period atmosphere. Shuttle buses to Eisenhower National Historic Site are
available from the Visitor Center.
How long should I plan for my visit?
Plan to spend a minimum of four hours at the park, though an entire day is more desirable if
you wish to take advantage of the museum, film and cyclorama program, have a leisurely tour
of the park and visit nearby attractions. Recently, visitors have spent an average of three and
one half hours in the museum alone!
