Education field trip programs are limited to a class size of 30 or less. However, larger groups can be accommodated in a standard site visit via the Eisenhower shuttle bus which departs throughout the day from the Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center. The standard visit includes a 15 minute ranger led tour of the site, an orientation talk in the living room of the Eisenhower home, and ample time to explore the remainder of the home, grounds, and exhibits.
To prepare students for a standard visit, teachers might consider using the Teaching with Historic Places lesson plan developed for Eisenhower National Historic Site: Thaw in the Cold War: Eisenhower and Khrushchev at Gettysburg .
