The Seminary Ridge Museum is a joint venture of the Lutheran Theological Semiseminary ridge museum logonary at Gettysburg, the Adams County Historical Society and the Seminary Ridge Historic Preservation Foundation. Located on the Seminary campus and part of the Gettysburg Battlefield's hallowed ground, the new museum offers an unprecedented opportunity to interpret the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg, the care of the wounded and human suffering that took place within Schmucker Hall during its use as a field hospital and the moral, civic and spiritual debates of the Civil War era. 

The Seminary Ridge Museum is an award winning, state of the art museum in an adaptively reused LEED certified building, featuring the exhibit "Voices of Duty and Devotion" including a changing exhibit.
