Adams County Community Appreciation Day

Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center
January 16, 2017, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

The Gettysburg Foundation and Gettysburg National Military Park invite Adams County residents to a Community Appreciation Day on January 16, 2017. On four designated Community Appreciation Days a year, Adams County residents enjoy free admission to the Cyclorama, Film and Museum Experience at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. Local visitors should be prepared to show proof of Adams County residence, such as a driver’s license, to obtain tickets. Due to the popularity of previous community events, Adams County residents are encouraged to arrive early. Tickets at the Museum and Visitor Center are available on a first-come, first-served basis. (Advance reservations are not available for Community Appreciation Day tickets and rain checks will not be available.)
Start with our film presentation, a New Birth of Freedom, immediately followed by a viewing of the famous Gettysburg Cyclorama. Then continue your visit by immersing yourself in our twelve-gallery museum. Hours: 9 am – 5 pm (the last show will begin at 4 pm). The Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center is located at 1195 Baltimore Pike, Gettysburg, PA.
The Gettysburg Foundation is a non-profit educational organization working in partnership with the National Park Service to enhance preservation and understanding of the heritage and lasting significance of Gettysburg. The Foundation raised funds for and now operates the Museum and Visitor Center at Gettysburg National Military Park. In addition to operating the Museum and Visitor Center, the Foundation has a broad preservation mission that includes land, monument and artifact preservation and battlefield rehabilitation—all in support of the National Park Service’s goals at Gettysburg.
