Wonderfully designed museum and the it is worth the extra fee to go to the cupola. Wall murals by Dale Gallon add to the videos and artifacts on display in the museum.
Well presented history of the battle at Gettysburg, especially the first day of the battle, through the eyes of the soldiers and civilians alike. Lifelike scenes are recreated. The cupola tours are for the hardcore civil war buffs, because of the $20 cost. Our guide Codi did a fantastic job of describing the various battle lines. It is the best... More
This latest museum added to those in Gettysburg is superb. It really covers all aspects of the war from the first day of the attack on Gettysburg until the rebels leave.

as the newest museum on the battlefield it is a fitting addition to the site.very well done ,my wife and i really enjoyed our time there

Concise exhibits begin with three minute videos on each of the four floors covering the building's role in the first day of the battle, medical care for the wounded, questions of faith, and history of the Lutheran seminary. Interactive exhibits to help young children understand while shielding them from graphic photos. We didn't pay the extra $20 for the guided... More
I've been to Gettysburg many times in the past couple of decades and really enjoy the battlefield and the museums. The Seminary Ridge Museum, recently opened this past summer, is well worth the time.
