Overview
More
See the ENTIRE battlefield at one time and watch the troop movements for ALL three days of battle. The battlefield covers 6,000 acres, an area large enough to be difficult to visualize. The Gettysburg Diorama will put the battle into perspective when you see the ENTIRE battlefield as it appeared in 1863. Carefully researched and meticulously assembled, the Diorama contains over 20,000 hand-painted soldiers, horses, cannons and buildings. Picture the battle through the eyes of Generals Meade and Lee as a narrative unfolds in miniature with a light and sound effects experience you won't forget.

From the souvenir shop to the diorama, everything seem overpriced compared to other attractions in town.

We got free tickets form the campground we stayed at. We would have purchased the tour anyways. A great way to acclimate yourself to the entire overview of the battle.

enjoyed the history. I felt it was some what of a repeat of other museums. Did buy a book so that I can continue to learn about Gettysburg and the Civil War.

A visit to the diorama gives you a good idea of the events of the three days of the Battle of Gettysburg. Glad we took the time to take it in and gain a better understanding of the area before our auto tour.
