Gettysburg Diorama puts before you the whole battle that shaped American history. The incredibly detailed scale model of the battlefield includes more than 20,000 handpainted soldiers, horses, and artillery pieces. The town of Gettysburg, along with its surrounding woods and fields, is recreated to perfectly depict the scene where the famous Civil War battle took place in 1863. You can learn how the battle progressed, hear the stories about generals George Meade and Robert E. Lee, and see clearly how the terrain influenced the troop movements and the outcome. Light and sound effects enhance the experience and make different aspects of the battle easier to understand.

  • Wow! It was so much easier to understand the logistics of the battle after seeing the diarama. Someone went to a lot of work creating it!
  • A great, kid (big and small) friendly place to spend time looking at a nicr variety of fascinating pieces of history (not limited to the battle) and of course the diorama is amazing!
  • Nice place... Great prices... Will go back there again
  • Pretty cool place. Store is high priced but so is everything in a tourist town.
  • The perfect way to start a trip to the Gettysburg battlefield. The presentation provided perspective and allowed us to orient ourselves during our exploration of the park. Worth the time and money
