Adams County residents are invited to enjoy complimentary admission to the Gettysburg Heritage Center Monday, January 16th, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The museum is open to visitors from 10 am – 4 pm, with the last entrance into the exhibit area at 3:00 pm. The invitation is extended to all residents living within the county, not just those with a Gettysburg address.
“This is our way of saying ‘Thank You’ to the Adams County community and allows us to share all we have to offer” explains Heritage Center Executive Director, Stephanie Lightner. “Our facility has grown over the years, while our museum continues to offer a glimpse into the civilians of Gettysburg, including an award-winning orientation movie, we became part of the non-profit, the Gettysburg Nature Alliance and it has expanded our mission and vision. We are excited to share this with the community!”
Upon entering the Heritage Center, local guests should be prepared to show proof of residency. The Gettysburg Heritage Center will continue to offer complimentary admission year-round to Gettysburg residents with a 17325 zip code.
The Gettysburg Heritage Center offers visitors a visual and interactive orientation to the town and the three-day battle. The story of Gettysburg unfolds for guests through various displays, 3-D programming, and historical artifacts.
The non-profit Gettysburg Nature Alliance educates about and preserves Gettysburg’s habitat and heritage; it operates the Gettysburg Heritage Center at 297 Steinwehr Avenue and an educational “learning barn” near historic Sachs Bridge.
