Begin your park experience at the visitor center. Here, you will find information on the park, the settlement, and the battles. Rangers or volunteers at the information desk are glad to help you. Primary facilities in the visitor center are a twenty-two minute live-action theater film, "Crossroads of Revolution" (shown on request); a colorful museum combining informative text with original artifacts and weaponry; and a bookstore (operated by Eastern National) offering visitors over 100 publications and theme-related items for sale on the battle and the Revolutionary War. Bookstore hours are the same as the visitor center. Public restrooms are located opposite the visitor center.
For park visits occurring when the visitor center is closed, park maps and the NPS passport stamp are available at the trailhead near the bulletin board.
