Children of Gettysburg 1863
The Children of Gettysburg 1863® experience is currently free for young historians 12 and under when accompanied by a ticketed adult. During your visit, you will introduce your child to Gettysburg and its significance while supporting a new generation of young learners on an interactive start to a lifetime of learning, inspiration and creativity.
- Informed Imagination: Your journey through galleries like “Growing Up in Gettysburg 1863,” “The Soldiers are Coming,” “Surviving the Battle” and “Remembering Gettysburg” provides a history-based setting for creativity, discovery and learning.
- Hands-on History: Children of Gettysburg 1863® invites families and groups with children in grades K-5—and those young at heart—to touch and learn, seek and explore, create and inspire.
- Interactive Activities: Lift the soldier’s equipment pack and feel the weight of what they carried. Find a place to safely hide during the battle. Stand at the podium to deliver the Gettysburg Address.
