In April this year, Gettysburg saw the opening of its brand new visitor center and museum. It’s a real beauty. It cost $103 million to build and admission has been free – until now.
Starting today, if you want to visit the new visitor center and museum then you’ll have to pay to see some of its features. Those specific parts of the center that involve an admission fee are:
- The center’s Cyclorama painting
- A 22-minute film about Gettysburg
- An artifact museum
The rest of the visitor center’s attractions, including the historic Gettysburg battlefield, are still free to the public.
Admission to each of the three amenities is $7.50. That’s each. But certain discounts do apply:
- Tickets are $5.50 for youth ages 6-18
- Admission is $6.50 for military personnel and seniors
- Group discounts for 16 people or more are available
- Multi-day passes are available on discount
- And annual passes are also being offered
Does this mean that visitors to Gettysburg should not tour the center and museum. Absolutely not. The complex is still a great attraction and you’ll really enjoy yourself.
