Park Information

The Gettysburg National Military Park is a mecca for tourists travelling from near and far. The Park is located just 50 miles northwest of Baltimore and is worth the day trip to visit the area.

American History buffs recognize Gettysburg as the site of the largest and single bloodiest battle during the Civil War.

On November 19, 1863 on that same hallowed ground, President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous speech, the "Gettysburg Address."

Plan a day during your visit for the Gettysburg National Military Park. You will love to see the many historical sites that we invite you to visit and explore. 

Attractions At The Park

When you come to the Gettysburg National Military Park, start your visit off with a tour of the Museum and Visitor Center. There you can watch the film "A New Birth of Freedom" and tour the Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War. 

After you see the Visitors Center, tour the battlefield to visit legendary landmarks of the fateful battle that took place there. You can also stop by the Eisenhower National Historic Site and the David Wills House. 

Be sure to save time to visit the Gettysburg National Cemetery to pay your respects to those who died in the battle. Remember that the cemetery is hallowed ground and visitors should be quiet and mindful of the headstones.

Reviews

We had a great time over there in this summer. Really special and cool experience to tour via our car in Gettysbury National Military Park and read and felt the history. Highly recommend to visit with your children and family.

One of the most beautifully well preserved battlefields in North America, this National Military Park encompasses nearly four thousand acres around the town of Gettysburg and preserves the battle that took place over the first three days of July 1863. Visitors to the park should start by visiting the museum and getting maps and information about the battlefield and the numerous ways of touring the battlefield. Tours can be self guided, a private tour guide can be hired, or there are many battlefield walks facilitated by National Park Service Rangers throughout the year. The park is open throughout the year but services can be limited in the winter months and large crowds are to be expected in the summer and especially in July around the anniversary of the battle. Please dress appropriately for the level of activity planned when visiting and bring plenty of water, sunscreen and bug spray in the summer.

My husband and I decided to make a day of it before heading to Philadelphia. It was a great idea. I haven’t been there since my grade school field trip. Many things have changed and has been updated but still glorious. Spent hours doing the auto tour and viewing the monuments. Definitely will go back to see what we missed. There’s never enough time when enjoying & learning apart of history.

My third visit to Gettysburg within a year. Battle lines are clear and I am free to examine other details which I did not see on my first two visits. Due to COVID, the secret stairway up the Pennsylvania monument is closed, so it isn’t possible to get a bird’s eye view of the whole battlefield... still, arriving just after sunset in August, it was a very different experience than early morning daylight in December or June.
