Park Visitor Center Closes for Rehabilitation Later This Year

The Antietam National Battlefield Visitor Center opened to the public in the winter of 1963. During the summer of 2021 the park will close the visitor center for a much needed rehabilitation. We expect to close mid summer of 2021. The project is expected to last until the Spring of 2023. During the construction there will be a temporary visitor center installed. The temporary visitor center will have a small exhibit area, visitor information/fee collection area, bookstore, and restrooms.

Learn more about operating hours and directions. Pets are allowed, but must be on a leash at all times when in the park, regardless of obedience OR proximity of owner. We ask that you clean up after your pet and pets are not allowed inside the visitor center, historic buildings, or the Antietam National Cemetery.
Some key places to visit include the visitor center, Dunker Church, and the National Cemetery. During the summer months and weekends during the spring and fall, stop and visit the Pry House Field Hospital. Conduct research at our park library, by appointment.
Learn, listen, hike, and explore. There are many things to do at Antietam, check out our calendar for special programs held throughout the year.
