  • 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
