Question: What’s new in Gettysburg for the 150th commemoration of the battle?
Answer: the Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum
The new Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum in the rehabilitated Schmucker Hall on the Lutheran Theological Seminary campus will feature 20,000 square feet of interactive exhibit galleries and educational programming to interpret three major areas of emphasis—none of which are the focus of any other museum in Gettysburg:
- the pivotal first day of the Battle of Gettysburg on Seminary Ridge
- the care of the wounded and human suffering within Schmucker Hall during its use as a Civil War field hospital
- the moral, civic, and spiritual debates of the Civil War era.
The musuem is the centerpiece of the 150th commemoration and will open to the public July 1, 1863–150 years to the day after the Battle of Gettysburg began.
