The Gettysburg Foundation is offering a special discount and programming at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center to honor our veterans on Veterans Day.

Veterans can enjoy free admission to the Film, Cyclorama & Museum Experience at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center. Ticket holders also have the unique opportunity to see the historic Gettysburg Cyclorama painting in a different light.

Different from the traditional experience of the light and sound show in which visitors experience Pickett’s Charge depicted in the Cyclorama painting, the special ‘lights up’ program will feature an introductory talk while in full light of the painting. Visitors can see a very different view of the historic painting with the lights up and gain an understanding of the history and scenes depicted in the painting with the opportunity for questions and answers.

U.S. military active-duty personnel receive free admission to the Film, Cyclorama & Museum Experience on a daily basis.

U.S. military veterans should be prepared to show proof of veteran status to obtain tickets. Veterans are encouraged to arrive early.

Guests will start with a film presentation of A New Birth of Freedom, immediately followed by the ‘lights up’ program on the Cyclorama painting of Pickett’s Charge completed in 1884. Visitors can then explore the 12-gallery Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War at their leisure throughout the day. The last film and cyclorama show will begin at 4pm.
