The many memorials and the auto tour that very aptly described the emotional and strategical moments of the battles really put those of us who try so desperately to understand these three days the horror of what must been seemed to bring soldiers as well we civilians

This is a must see when visiting Gettysburg and check at the information desk for ranger talks. They are free and offered throughout the day at various locations on the battlefield.

I live in Gettysburg, and this is why people come to this small town. Don't skimp on your time spent here. A battlefield tour will take a minimum of 2 hours - and that doesn't include walking around and really trying to grasp what happened here. It is a beautiful and inspiring place.

Take guided tour instead of bus tour. It is more informative. Devil's den provides fantastic view of battlefield.

Even for those not interested in history, there is lots to see and do in Gettysburg. At the top of the list is the movie, cyclorama, and the museum at the Visitor's Center. While a great experience, these are just a prelude to the battlefields themselves. It is surreal to stand on the battlefields and imagine what took place during... More

A must see when you visit. Should also see the Ike home and the auto tour (purchased the audio tour and loved all the facts they had to offer in the convenience of my own car rather than a tour bus).

The visitor center is very well run and organized. This is a battlefield that must be experienced. We were able to see the entire park in one day, found that the audio tour was worthwhile. you can never get the flavor of what you are seeing without a tour map and disks. Fun to roam about and discover the many... More

The Gettysburg NMP is a must-see for anyone with even a marginal interest in history. The movie is appropriate and respectful. The cyclorama is surprisingly effective. And, if you get the chance, the NMP offers a chance for a guide to ride in your car to show you the battlefield and to explain how and why each part of the... More

I live in a small town in Idaho. And recently got the opportunity to come out here, and see Gettysburg, and the Battlefields. I have always been a huge lover of history, and the Civil War, and President Lincoln happen to be a few of My favorites. I'am very thankful for this experience, and everything was set up so perfectly.... More

Very well kept and so much to see. Love every visit here. So much to learn that you need multiple trips or at least 2-3 days to really get to see the park.
