Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
Located along Steinwehr Avenue, adjacent to the battlefield, various hotels and restaurants, the Gettysburg Heritage Center offers a convenient and exceptional location for meetings, events, classes and more! In addition to the conference room, the museum and theater space located within the Heritage Center complex can be rented for after-hours events.
The Gettysburg Heritage Center is a great place to start your visit. Offering a museum that focuses on both the story of the town, and that of the battlefield, guests gain a true understanding of what life was like before, during and after the battle. The movie, “Gettysburg: An Animated Map,” offers a exceptional and concise overview of the three day battle. Looking at Gettysburg from two different perspectives, this is truly an orientation experience you do not want to miss. In addition to the museum, the Gettysburg Heritage Center is home to one of the largest and most unique gift & book stores in the area! The variety of merchandise ranges from gifts and collectibles, to games, toys and souvenirs. The extensive collection of Civil War books, both adult and children’s titles, contains hard to find, new releases, and autographed copies.
