Gettysburg Heritage Center....
A Visual And Interactive Orientation To The Battle Of Gettysburg!
Touring the Gettysburg Heritage Center Museum, guests will witness the Battle of Gettysburg from two unique perspectives – the civilians who lived in the town of Gettysburg, and the soldiers on the battlefield. Take a step back in time to see the reality of war, and hear the stories of the people who called Gettysburg home. This story is told through 3-D photographs and programs, artifacts, interactive displays, and story boards. The second part of the tour is a 20-minute movie presentation that offers a great orientation to the Battle of Gettysburg. The award-winning movie, “Gettysburg: An Animated Map,” is presented by the American Battlefield Trust. The Gettysburg Heritage Center museum is the perfect place to begin your tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield!
The friendly and knowledgeable staff of the Gettysburg Heritage Center can help you plan your tour of the battlefield. There are a variety of ways to learn about the battle; from bus tours, to horse & carriage, scoot-coupes, and more! Every tour is different!
