Overview

Explore Gettysburg with your group.

The Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center is the official start to your group’s Gettysburg visit.

Begin with the Film, Cyclorama & Museum Experience.

• See the film A New Birth of Freedom.

• Sense Pickett’s Charge all around you in the light and sound show of the iconic 360- degree Gettysburg Cyclorama.

• Journey through the events surrounding the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg with rare artifacts and interactive exhibits in the Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War.

Tour the Battlefield: Enhance your group visit with a bus tour of the battlefield with a Licensed Battlefield Guide. Step onto hallowed ground and enrich your experience as your bus makes stops at some of the battlefield’s most iconic locations.

Take some time to shop and dine at the Museum & Visitor Center:

• Shop in the Gettysburg Museum Book Store where your group will find an extensive collection of books, gifts, memorabilia and apparel.

• Dine in the Refreshment Saloon modeled after an actual Civil War-era saloon, or groups can take advantage of convenient dining options with group breakfasts, dinners and boxed meals from the Battlegrounds Cafe & Grille.

Enjoy special group programs. Take your group close up and behind the scenes with an exclusive, after hours look at the iconic Cyclorama painting.

An Evening with the Painting

Discover the secrets of the Gettysburg Cyclorama with an all-access look at this historic treasure. Your group can step inside the illusion for an interactive tour where they will hear the story, admire the artwork and even find a few surprises. We’ll guide your group through the construction, preservation and immersive effects of a spectacle audiences have called “moving,” “riveting” and “breathtaking. Experience the Cyclorama in a whole new light—with the lights on.
