Community Free Day

On Sunday, June 30, Seminary Ridge Museum will host a Community Free Day. Through the generosity of The Robert E. Hoffman Charitable Endowment Trust, all Adams County residents will enjoy free Museum Admission. Please bring a valid ID (one per party is fine). Museum Admission does not include guided Cupola Tours, which can be purchased separately at a discounted rate.

Director of Education and Museum Operations Codie Eash will lead a series of interactive children’s programs throughout the day, including “Life in a Cavalry Camp” at 11:30 a.m., “Civil War Signal Corps” at 1:30 p.m., and “Mending the Wounded” at 3:30 p.m., each of which is recommended most for students in grades 5-12. We will also host a sunset walking tour at 6:30 p.m. for all ages, titled “The Eve of Battle: June 30, 1863.” Each of these programs is free to all visitors.

A full schedule of our Battle of Gettysburg 161st Anniversary on the Ridge programming, June 28 through July 5, is available here.

Additional Community Free Days will occur on September 14 and November 16 of this year, and January 20, 2025. Free programming presented on these days will emphasize how Gettysburg and south-central Pennsylvania fit into larger narratives, drawing a connection between local and national history.

We hope that all Adams County residents will take advantage of this opportunity to have a truly special connection to the past as we help make history more accessible for all. We look forward to seeing you on the Ridge!
