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.

Other than engaging the services of a national park guide to drive our car around Gettysburg, this was the best stop we made. One gets a tremendous visual overhead look at the 3 days of the battle, with colored lights used to represent the armies...More

I thought it was super interesting, but unfortunately, it was too much input for my 9yo ("normal") daughter. I wish we could have stayed but she was so scared between the dark and the loud noises, she couldn't focus on the presentation. We'll try again...More

Sorry your daughter didn't enjoy the show. We're telling the story about a great battle during the Civil War and we do use light and sound effects to bring the battle to life.

This place is like a cheesy little souvenir shop with a great big diorama in the back. It's kinda outdated and dusty, but the layout and presentation is worth the price of admission.
