The guided tour was fun and informative. We learned a lot. Then we did the self-guided driving tour and got to see up close some of the places the tour guide mentioned. It's worth coming to see!

We toured the Museum, watched the movie, took an excellent Park Ranger guided tour, then bought the CD for the self guided driving tour. Each adds to the other to give a total picture of the importance of this battle.

Be sure to do the guided tour from the museum. Not too long.Then buy the cd in the gift shop and take the audio tour. Was there for July 4th, parked on the "no mans land" battle field. Cool!

Interesting and educational, but we purchased the CD for the auto tour and found it became boring after a while.

Although very little is marked and we had to stop at every placard along the way we got the feel for the Battle

The driving tour was just what the Dr ordered for a rainy day! We had a great time with the kids and it was fun reading all the signs. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for fun and history.

I wouldn't recommend it. Because of the size of the roads and the twists and turns, it would be cumbersome. It would be much easier without pulling an RV.

My dad is over 60 and he was offered a lifetime pass for 10 dollars and is good for all national parks. We were there on a Wednesday and had the park to ourselves. They offer an audio tour so you can move at your own pace.
