The tours and guides are awesome. However, once can just as easily to a self guided tour. The cyclorama and opening video are helpful in drawing a picture of the battle of Gettyburg's. The museum is one of the larger ones one will find in Gettysburg. It is a great place to start if one does not know about the... 更多
The new Gettysburg Visitor Center is full of information about the Battle of Gettysburg. A movie, cyclorama, museum, knowledgeable park rangers, tickets for tours, gift shop, restaurant, restrooms, and member services. Take 1-2 hours to go through this comprehensive center - cost for movie, museum and cyclorama is $12.50 each. Tons of books in the gift shop, great selection. Restaurant... 更多
I highly recommend spending the money to have a tour guide come with you in your car. They've got great stories and really know where to bring you for the best parts of the Park.
The cyclorama and opening video were very helpful in explaining the Gettyburg's vital role in the civil war in an interesting way. Our whole group, including children enjoyed it. Staff were helpful. The museum part was a bit dark, it would have been hard for someone with eye-sight issues to get around, but otherwise we enjoyed it.
The tours and guides are awesome. The show on the Battle of Picketts Charge is heart stopping. The gift shop is a little pricey. Some of the same gifts can be bought in town for much less. The only thing that I was really disappointed in was that there were only two monitors hooked up in the computer search room... 更多
This visitor center appears to be new or at least refurbished. It is beautiful. You can sign up for tours, see a film, visit the cyclorama, peruse the museum and gift shop. Plan on spending several hours here is you want to be thorough. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable.
Everything here is easy to see and read. The Cyclorama is beautifully done and you can't believe the painting is that old. The staff are friendly and helpful. Don't miss this sight
Added credibility to my 8th grade history treacher's stories. Film is on a par with what you'd expect at Disney. Take in the whole visitor's center experience before visiting the battle field itself. We took the battlefield bus tour and then did the self directed auto tour stopping where we wanted to take pictures and just reflect on what had... 更多
The museum has so much memorabilia and such a powerful presentation of such a sad time in the life of the United States. It is an amazing gift to the people to visit and see and feel what a tremendous event happened on the sacred grounds. It is a very powerful place to visit. Wonderful for families and people of... 更多
The people that work here are so informative! Make sure to see this museum and center. Great exhibits and do see the Treasures of the Civil War exhibit . It has some great stuff in it.
This museum was wonderful. Be prepared to wander. The museum is set up to stroll through small spaces. There are some hands on exhibits, most are behind glass.
Spend at least a half-day here; trying to do it in less time will mean something has to be missed. The base museum experience includes a brief movie which is evocative, if not very detailed, a visit to the cyclorama experience, and a museum ticket. The cyclorama dates back to the century of the battle itslef; a large, oil-on canvas,... 更多
