  • This was a fantastic thing to see when visiting Gettysburg. Knowledgeable ladies that knew their stuff and were happy to explain things to you if you had any questions. This was very, very well done!  more »

  • I was surprised and disappointed. Surprised and very pleased with the diorama. A great deal of work went into this and it shows. Great narrative too. Disappointed with the gift shop which included current, Trump and Clinton political stuff. Very tacky.
  • I was surprised. This is a great representation of the battlefield, very detailed, and the show plays it out with a great since of realism and depth. Afterwards head downstairs to the free gun museum showing more firearms than the National Gettysburg museum a few miles down the road.
  • Worth the amount to see, went with my kid and enjoyed the diorama. Was a great learning experience. Easy to get in and see.
  • Fantastic miniature model of the area and great little show to get a better understanding of all 3 days of the battle.
  • Let's you see the battle up close in miniature
