The Heritage Center chose to follow the lead of the Gettysburg Foundation and Gettysburg National Military Park, and offer complimentary admission to the Adams County community. Throughout the year, the Gettysburg Foundation and Gettysburg National Military Park designate community appreciation days, which allow locals to enter at no charge.
“All too often people do not take advantage of what is in their own back yard,” states Heritage Center President, Tammy Myers. “Offering complimentary admission in conjunction with the Gettysburg Foundation’s Community Appreciation Day, gives guests more to experience during their visit; and we feel we complement each other well.”
Local guests should be prepared to show proof of residency, upon entering the Heritage Center.
The Gettysburg Heritage Center will continue to offer complimentary admission year-round to Gettysburg residents with at 17325 zip code.
The focus of the Gettysburg Heritage Center is on the town and the civilians of Gettysburg, before, during and after the Civil War. The story of Gettysburg unfolds for guest through interactive displays, 3-D programming, and historic artifacts. Much of the success of the museum is due to various partnerships, including the Adams County Historical Society and the Civil War Trust.
