The Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum and its Voices of Duty and Devotion exhibits will feature themes not focused on anywhere else in Gettysburg:
- An in-depth look at the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg, which was waged along Seminary Ridge
- Detailed insight into the care of the wounded–Schmucker Hall, home of the museum, was the largest field hospital at Gettysburg
- Exploration of the topics of faith and freedom–the role of religion in the Civil War and meaning of freedom
A four-floor musuem with 20,000 square feet of exhibit space, artifacts will be exhibited and the stories of the people of the time will illustrate the struggles and triumphs of one of the most important eras in our nation’s history. That consequences of that era are still felt today–and visitors will leave the Seminary Ridge Museum with a better idea of how the events of the past are relevant today.
Please note that all four floors of the museum and its restrooms are handicap accessible. Ample handicap parking is available in the main lot off of Seminary Ridge.
