Gettysburg National Military Park invites you to enjoy engaging and inclusive family events in 2023.
On Saturdays from Jan. 7 through Feb 25, 2023, families can spend weekends at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center for special family programming. Gettysburg National Military Park’s presents winter reading adventures for families and children.
The History Kids Reading Adventures Club, for families with children ages 4 to 10, returns to the Museum & Visitor Center this year with a Superheroes of History theme. Book readings focus on such famous people as Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, Jane Goodall, Neil Armstrong and many others. Each Saturday morning from 11 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. in Jan. and Feb., families can join a park educator to hear a new book, with pages projected onto the movie screen. Then, families can participate in a related indoor or outdoor family-led adventure. This reading program teaches budding historians about important events and important people in history with a focus on the Civil War era.
The National Park Service winter programming at Gettysburg is free of charge. For more information on family focused programs at Gettysburg National Military Park, visit nps.gov/gett or email Gett_Education@nps.gov.
