Park Visitor Center Reopens Following Rehabilitation

The Antietam National Battlefield Visitor Center opened to the public in the winter of 1963. Over the past two years, it has been extensively restored and it is now home to new interpretive exhibits. The Visitor Center is open every day from 9 am to 5 pm.

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.
