You have to see every aspect of Gettysburg and see all the museums that have so much to show you and like this place many, many stories. Seeing what the soldiers used everyday was an interesting part of our trip.

Gift shop is well stocked. Great book selection for educators or parents. We were there with 2 buses of youngsters on a field trip. Unfortunately students were not supervised and noisy. Made our experience not as nice as it could have been

This is one of the better attractions. It's not as crowded as other museums but still has case after case of really cool memorabilia, models, and relics.

This museum was nice. It offered a lot of artifacts and history and insight to the battle. Was worth visiting while it was opened.

Closed!! This attraction is no longer in existence - they've sold off all the figures. and if I recall correctly they're going to rehab the building to be closer to its historical appearance.

What a great place to go and take a look at real history. It made me proud to hear my kids ask questions about what we were looking at. When I had heard of its closing I was sad,but grateful for the memories
