  • Dusty and a bit worn, yet we still thought it interesting to see. Just needs work and updating. I'd skip this next time I go. Just the battle scene they had was worth seeing, but old and worn manikins...  more »
  • This attraction no longer exists - it closed down & the figures were auctioned off. Sole "survivor" when I was down there last month was Like outside the door.  more »
  • I first went here way back in 1990 with my wife and new son. Gettysburg has lost just a little bit of nostalgic charm with the passing of this (admittedly a bit cheesy) museum.  more »

  • This place has to be one of the best. It is from the 1950's and still feels that way. Even though it is very current still feels old. The hall of First Ladies was a lot of fun too.
  • A neat place to visit to hear about all of the presidents. Air conditioning, and sitting for most of the tour. Similar to Disney's Hall of Presidents, but way more in depth on each one, without the animatronics. Maybe not a must see, but fairly decent if you enjoy this kind of thing.
  • Tacky but a fun tourist stop
  • Quiche fun!
  • Not very good. Many did not look even close to photographs of them especially the more modern ones. NO BATHROOMS so don't take children. First Ladies display was unique and good.

Where to stay in Gettysburg

Though Gettysburg offers plenty of lodging options to suit every visitor's budget, remember that you must reserve your room at least a few months ahead of time if you plan to attend the popular battle reenactments. Many inns in the heart of town offer both a sense of history and many modern amenities, including exercise facilities and both indoor and outdoor pools. You can also choose to stay at a comfortable hotel just northwest of the area's historical battlefield complex, located only minutes from downtown.
