This was our first visit, but definitely won't be our last. It was amazing to imagine what those who fought had to go through during this war. Gettysburg park provided a great insight of this. We took the 2 hour private car tour. Our guide was great and we wouldn't have learned half of what we did in those 2... More

We spent an entire day here. Fantastic educational experience. We bought the 3-combo ticket for the museum, movie and two hour narrated bus tour of the battle field and the price was worth it. The junior ranger program is great for grade school kids. The Cyclorama was awe-inspiring. The guided bus tour was educational and informative. Our guide answered questions,... More

Loved the cyclorama and the movie. My husband went through the museum portion and said it was great. I'm pregnant and wasn't feeling up to taking in more information, but I went through the gift shop which was alot of fun. Neat items that you'd actually want to buy - not just dust collectors. Tons of cool things for kids.... More

We stopped in at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. There we bought a combination ticket for the Gettysburg Museum and visitor's center and the Eisenhower Estate. The Eisenhower Estate is in a separate review. The Tickets gets you into the Museum and movie. To visit the park you take a guided tour that the Museum offers... More

Gettysburg is one of the most major events in the history of our country. Every time we are here, you can almost envision the sacrifice that these men - both Yankee and Confederate - made on behalf of this country. I highly suggest that if time and money allow, the best way to see the park is with a National... More

Gettysburg National Military Park is a place that you have to spend time with to appreciate and to understand the magnitude of what happened there 150 years ago. As many other reviews state, it's a huge advantage to hire one of the licensed tour guides. Whether you have a personal guide drive your car or take a Segway tour, their... More
