About us

The Gettysburg Heritage Center & Museum focuses on the town of Gettysburg, from the perspective of the civilians leading up to, and during the three day battle. Visitors learn what life was like for the civilians who called Gettysburg home. Included in the tour is a 20 minute HD movie entitled "Gettysburg: Animated Map".
