Watched the movie. The rangers answered my questions. Great exhibits. If you love Civil War history and in the area, definitely stop. The Visitor Center is in the museum. Pull around to the left.

Driving through the battlefield using the audio tour while waiting for the visitor center to open was really powerful. Then we watched the 30 min movie about the battle. This free attraction is right off interstate 75. Highly recommended!

In three hours you could see a few of the main attractions, such as Wilder Tower and Snodgrass hill. The park is about 30 minutes from Chattanooga.
