GNP Visitor Center Returns to Normal Daily Hours for Visitors

The Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, home of the Gettysburg Cyclorama and the Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War, announces new hours of operation throughout the summer starting Saturday, May 1, 2021.

The Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center had offered visitors reduced hours since reopening its doors June 25, 2020, and again Jan. 7, 2021, after two temporary closure periods for precautionary measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus, consistent with federal and state officials’ COVID-19 protective mitigation measures and guidelines.

Beginning May 1, 2021, the new hours of operation will provide visitors access to the Museum & Visitor Center, seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. throughout the summer months, June through September.

The health and well-being of our visitors and community come first, and we look forward to continuing to welcome guests to the Museum & Visitor Center daily.
