We booked a car trip with a guide for $56 plus tax. Money well spent. Paul our guide was excellent. He drove our car around the battlefield stopping at the various high points. His knowledge was exceptional and he had artifacts to illustrate the knowledge he was sharing. He made us feel comfortable straight way and was genuinely interested in... More

Absolutely amazing. We truly loved the visit. There seemed to be a special aura of reverence all over the park.

It is a beautiful area. The museum is not exceptional if you have been to other Civil War museums but the movie and diarama were well- done. Being southern to the bone, it left me a little sad. It was my first time there and was well worth the time. My husband doesn't walk well so we were limited to... More

My husband and I used the 2 CD guidebook self-guided tour. Works very well. We spent a bit over 4 hours and made 5 stops. There are many stops we did not make due to a time constraint. If you can, give this tour a full day, if you like to stop and absorb all there is to see. We... More

Great interpretation of this critical battle. Self-directed auto tour was very good, with good signage throughout.

Hired a driver for $65 who drove our car around the battlefield. We learned so much this way, and made our trip out from DC all the more worthwhile.

The movie was geared for someone about 12 and had a few inaccuracy, as they tried to cover too much in too short a time, but the cyclodome (that might be spelled wrong) was fascinating and worth the time spent in the movie. All and all, an important stop while at the battlefield.

For History, this is the place to be. You can get guided tours here also. Go early in the day so you can catch one. There is nothing like being on the actual battle field with a professional guide

There are few places in this world with this kind of history. I went with my wife and her parents. My wife had never been there before until she took me a couple of years ago. She instantly fell in love with the town and battlefields. Her parents visited shortly after and also fell in love. So, it was only... More
