Oct 6



First, you SHOULD purchase your all-in-one ticket at the Ticketing/Reservation Counter, and hope that you are actually able to see all the venues for which you’re purchasing a ticket. Don’t check your watch in disbelief, as the man is doing on the right, in case you are told that you’re purchasing a ticket at 9:30 AM for a Cyclorama show at 3:00 PM. Just be grateful that you can see the show some time today. This view was taken from the south facing north at approximately 9:15 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.

On a previous post, we showed visitors how to get into the Gettysburg Museum without paying the new fee which had previously never been charged for the artifacts in this collection. This was probably very bad of us. So today, we will make it up to the Foundation by showing you how NOT to get into the Museum for free.

To see the fiasco dealing with logistics on busy days, see our post for October 5, 2008.

To see the post on the first day of the Museum fee and getting through the museum another way, see our post for October 2, 2008.



When you approach the Museum, make sure that you have tunnel vision, and are only focused on the ticket taker by the doors under the words, “Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War.” This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 9:15 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.



Do not take a step back and notice that there are other doors in this area leading in the same general direction. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 9:30 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.



Do not go through these doors in front of which ticket takers are not standing, and both sets of doors open very easily. This view was taken from the south facing north at approximately 9:30 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.



Do Not walk down this hallway where the Gettysburg Address was on display last week. This view was taken from the south facing north at approximately 9:30 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.



And whatever you do, Do Not go through this door to the left of the elevator. The handle turns too easily, and you will be right in the museum. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 9:30 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.



Or don’t continue down the hallway towards these other sets of doors. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 9:30 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.



These are the sets of doors which we showed you on the previous post about getting into the museum that we probably shouldn’t have shown you. You know, the post where you come in the doors on the right (Exit Doors) and come towards the two doors on the left. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 9:30 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.



Because from whatever direction you come to these doors, they open when you put your hands on the handles and turn them. Then the guilt will overwhelm you because you’ll be standing in the museum. Remember you can’t take advantage just because nobody is taking tickets at any of these entrances that I’m not showing you. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 9:30 AM on Sunday, October 5, 2008.



Back on Reynolds Avenue, this is the seventh day that asphalt is touching the right flank marker to the 147th New York Infantry Regiment. This view was taken from the north facing south at approximately 4:30 PM on Monday, October 6, 2008.
