Pamplin Historical Park & The National Museum of the Civil War Soldier is offering $1 general daily admission throughout the summer from Memorial Day May 28 through Labor Day September 3, 2018. This drastically reduced admission rate will allow all people an opportunity to access this amazing facility and share in our national heritage from the Antebellum period, including the institution of slavery, through the Civil War. $1 admission has been made possible in part by The Bank of Southside Virginia and through private donations.

The Park strives to share the stories of civilians, enslaved and common soldiers with all people as their stories are now part of the American experience, which belongs to all Americans. All summer long, visitors can share in the experiences in the museums, at four historic homes and in the Park with new devices from Orpheo. These devices provide audio and images on a five inch screen at over 80 locations throughout the 424-acre campus. Additional focus weekends will offer unique historical interpretation programs.

In 2017, the Park experimented by offer a $1 admission weekend which saw an over 1000% increase in attendance and engaged members of the local and regional communities who had never visited the Park. This served to break down economic and cultural barriers by allowing guests from all walks of life and backgrounds to explore the Park.

During last year’s $1 admission event, Park Executive Director Jerry Desmond spoke with one family of seven including four children ages 5-12. Desmond states, “Seeing my name tag, the father thanked me explaining that he had lived in Dinwiddie County all of this life. For the past 20 years he had driven by the Park every day on his way to work but had never stopped in because the admission price was too high. On a regular day it would have cost him over $75 to bring his family to the Park…on that day it only cost him $7.” No better example highlights the passion and reasoning behind the reduced summer admission days.

The $1 general admission does not apply to group or guided tours, which are required to book in advance and some special events require additional fees. Call (804) 861-2408 or visit www.pamplinpark.org for more information on summer activities and $1 admission days throughout the summer.

One of “Virginia’s Best Places to Visit” according to the Travel Channel, and designated as a National Historic Landmark, Pamplin Historical Park & The National Museum of the Civil War Soldier is a 424-acre Civil War campus located in Dinwiddie County, Virginia offering a combination of high-tech museums and hands-on experiences. The Park has four world-class museums and four antebellum homes. The Park is also the site of The Breakthrough Battlefield of April 2, 1865 and America’s premiere participatory experience, Civil War Adventure Camp. For more information, please call 804-861-2408 or visit www.pamplinpark.org.

          Woah, are they really offering this admission for that much? If this is true, then I will leave my www.rushmyessays.org job right now, and apply to get admission through this. If I can do this, it would make my life so much easier.

                                  It should be noted that whilst ordering papers for sale at paper writing service, you can get unkind attitude. In case you feel that the bureau is trying to cheat you, don't buy term paper from it. Cardamom
