The Visitor Center is open seven days a week (hours vary according to season), and contains exhibits about the battle, a twenty-nine minute film, an eight-minute fiber optics map program and a bookstore. In compliance with ADA standards, assisted listening devices are available for use with the orientation film.

An excellent Civil War research library is open to visitors from Tuesday through Saturday.

All park facilities are closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

In addition to the Visitor Center, the Ray House is open periodically through the summer, with interpreters dressed in period clothing giving guided tours.
