Andersonville National Historic Site commemorates the experiences of all American Prisoners of War. The site of historic Camp Sumter (Andersonville Prison) is one of the main features of the park. Camp Sumter was built in early 1864 and was one of the largest of the many Confederate military prisons established during the Civil War.
The park also features the National Prisoners of War Museum which will re-open to the public April 1, 2021 at reduced capacity.
Andersonville National Cemetery and park grounds are open to the public daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m
An audio driving tour is available for a nominal fee. It allows visitors to tour the historic prison site and the National Cemetery in their cars while listening to a narration about the history of the site.
While visiting the park, please allow for adequate social distancing. Visitors are also required to wear face masks in federal buildings including visitor centers, historic structures, and museums. When outdoors, face masks are required on NPS-managed lands when physical distance cannot be maintained.
