  • When I first heard the wax museum would be no more I was sad & convinced the owners were making a mistake. I was so so wrong. I LOVE the new HERITAGE CENTER! The 3D pics were AWESOME. All of the artifacts were wonderful. My favorite exhibit was the 3 Rebs posing for the camera & the camera set itself. I was pleased the wax figures were kept in the map area, but I was hoping they would be lit up more. I also missed Lincoln coming up from the stage. This is a fantastic place to learn about the people & the town of Gettysburg. It's priced right too. I recommend it to everyone.
  • I was very disappointed that it is no longer a wax museum but it was still pretty cool to see all the new things in there. My favorite part was the cellar experience. Definitely worth going through at least once.
  • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed walking through the Gettysburg Heritage Center. We especially liked the 3D photographs and the movies. My favorite was sitting in a mock up of one of the farmers cellars at that time period right and hearing as well as seeing the events during that 3 day period in 1863. With the sounds and video, it felt real. The museum docents were warm, friendly, and knowledgable. It was a great experience at a very reasonable price! Kudos to the Gettysburg Heritage Center!
  • It's a great place two 15 minuet informational movies a wax display and the history nerds tour was AWSOME plus you get free stuff
  • I liked this place better when it was a wax museum. Now it's one room and not much to learn. It's supposed to be a heritage museum but didn't really learn about the citizens of Gettysburg. Way overpriced for a one room exhibit and felt like I wasted my time.
