Fees are going up at the Gettysburg National Military Park
GETTYSBURG — It will cost more to visit exhibits surrounding the hallowed ground of Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
The National Park Service has approved higher fees to experience the museum, film and cyclorama, a 360-degree canvas depicting the dramatic Union Army stand against the Confederate troops on the final day of the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg.
Visitors age 13 and older will pay $15 instead of $12.50, beginning in January. The last fee increase was in 2012.
The park service says it expects to continue to work collaboratively for the long-term financial sustainability of the exhibits. There is no entrance fee for the park itself.
The park features relics of the battle and the people who fought in the Civil War.
