Fodor's Expert Review Gettysburg Heritage Center

Gettysburg Family

Renovated in recent years, the Gettysburg Heritage Center presents the story of the Civil War era and the Battle of Gettysburg through artifacts, a 20-minute film, 3-D programs, and interactive exhibits that include an educational scavenger hunt. There are several ways to tour the battlefield, including Victorian carriage, horseback, electric bike, and 90-minute walking tours (prices vary). Complimentary living-history camps that demonstrate what life was like for the Civil War soldiers are offered most weekends from May to November.
