  • Enjoyed walking through this museum. Four floors of so many historical facts. Hospital displays were amazing. Enjoyed the first two floors the best. Friendly staff.

  • We had the opportunity to participate in the escape room here called "Escape from Seminary Ridge". Getting the tickets were extremely easy and we did the room at night. We parked in the parking lot, but had to go all the way around the building to find the door. It is completely accessible though. I should have done some research about the building beforehand because there is an awesome 3 story museum under the attic space they are using for the escape room. I would give yourself a minimum of 90 minutes to view the museum. The escape room was clever and mixed with historical facts. While we didn't finish, we had such a fun experience. I won't review any of the actual escape room, you will just have to try it out for yourself.
  • We attended the "24 Hours on the Ridge" program. This was our first visit to Gettysburg. What we saw of the program was great. The sunset tour of the cupola was spectacular. The staff was very friendly and the exhibits were interesting. We really enjoyed our time there.
