GETTYSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Visitors to Gettysburg National Military Park will see increased fees next year for museum exhibits, films, and the Cyclorama painting at the museum and visitor center.
The National Park Service has approved increases proposed by the Gettysburg Foundation, the nonprofit responsible for museum operations, according to a news release.
The Gettysburg Foundation uses revenue from ticket sales, the bookstore, and food services in the museum and visitor center to pay for operations and for preservation and education programs on the battlefield.
Beginning in January, fees at the museum will increase from $12.50 to $15 for ages 13 and up, from $11.50 to $14 for seniors and AAA discounts, and from $8.50 to $10 for children ages 6-12. Fees for children 5 and under and for active-duty U.S. military will remain free.
Gettysburg National Military Park has no entrance fee, and self-guided tours of the battlefield are free.
