The tours were good and informative. Never sure if Americans regard the place as a battlefield where huge loss of life took place, or a theme park. gift shop sold all manner of stuff not sure fudge, chocolate, shirts hats etc is fitting tribute to the dead, but hey that's obviously just me. Take warm clothing and good shoes.

As we arrived there were a lot of people leaving complaining. TAKE THIS TOUR IN WARM WEATHER. Too hot or too cold ruins it.

Make sure you were good walking shoes. I bring a book about all the monuments so that you have info on hand.

Great time with family doing the audio suit your. Ask at the visitors center the best option as there are 4 different audio tours to take. The attendant there helped us picked the perfect option with 5 kids. The markers do get confusing though but overall great tour that provides you flexibility to go at your own pace.

The Gettysburg battlefield is by far one of the most engaging historic experiences you will have. You can spend days here learning and visiting everything. My husband and I come back several times each visit and enjoy it each and every time. Trust me, take the time to explore and learn. It's an amazing place to visit.

Don’t even know where to begin on this review. This park is an amazing place to visit. You really need to allow yourself 2-3 days to get grasp and understanding of what took place on this battlefield. Definitely do the audio tour one day (available for purchase in the visitor center gift shop), and then go back to individual sites... More

I've been to Gettysburg too many times to count. I attended Bowdoin College and co-majored in Government and History, so it has a special place in my heart owing to the role Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain played here. But the Gettysburg military site is more than Little Round Top. It is Pickett's Charge and Emmitsburg Road and the Copse of Trees...... More

As far as Civil War battlefields go, Gettysburg is crowded. I love the restoration efforts. I suggest picking a unit that fought there and following their story across the battlefield. If you don't know much about the battle, I highly recommend renting a guide for the day.

There are not enough words to describe the jaw-dropping visions of history that are right at your feet. My son has Autism and is a military historian, and was so inspired by this military park because he was able to envision the history as if it were right in front of him as live action.
