Gettysburg Beyond the Battle Museum

New Museum Opening in April 2023!

Gettysburg Beyond the Battle Museum will be located inside the new home of the Adams County Historical Society, a 29,000-square-foot complex currently under construction just north of Gettysburg. It will feature twelve galleries of immersive exhibits exploring more than three centuries of American history, all from the perspective of one very famous community. 

In addition, the museum will host frequent history programs for all ages inside a stunning event venue and education center overlooking the battlefield. The complex will also include a spacious library and archives where visitors can access some of Gettysburg's rarest archival holdings, including hundreds of civilian accounts from the Battle of Gettysburg and Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.

Ticket reservations will be available soon. Check back for updates!
