Park Visitor Center Closes for Rehabilitation Later This YearThe Antietam National Battlefield Visitor Center opened to the public in the winter of 1963. Later this year the park will close the visitor center for a much needed rehabilitation. We expect to close late summer/early fall of 2020. The project is expected to last from 18 months to two years. 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.
Learn, listen, hike, and explore. There are many things to do at Antietam, check out our calendar for special programs held throughout the year.
