To see and hear the words as the presidents would have spoken them to you the audience is Awesome. The First Lady Figures in the Inaugural Dresses is real to the time of each event.
It was my second day at Gettysburg, but because of the shutdown, National Soldier's Cemetery was closed. I ended up in this museum. While waiting to finish the President's tour, I was directed to check out the First ladies exhibit first. I was so thrilled with the First ladies' miniature likeness dolls and their inaugural gowns. I loved the gowns,... More
This attraction was really strange!! The presidents looked almost comical. Gerald Ford's face is melting off!!!! However, it was nice to sit in the very chilly exhibits and hear some pretty interesting facts about our presidents. The First Ladies were completely FREAKY!!! They are the size of very large dolls, and lots of them have the exact same face!!!! They... More
I know some may not think this is the most flashy stop while in Gettysburg. Well, it is not, but it is also not a bad stop if you find the time to learn more about some earlier Presidents. Take the kids, make it an educational day, and maybe they will learn something.
The wax presidents look weird, and as I read in a previous review, there always seems to be one staring at you (menacingly..). This tour is not for children. I don't have children, but I am an adult with a longer attention span and I couldn't pay attention to the recordings..so that's how I know. It does look outdated; think... More
This museum is very old and the presidents are made if wax which totally freaks me out ; but surprisingly this was the most enjoyable museum we went to. I think that was because we didn't have a tour guide that was so long winded and since we were the only 2 people in there we could do and say... More
My husband and I were in Gettysburg this Labor Day weekend. We have been there 8 times or so over the years and this was one of the museums still on our list to see. We were not disappointed. We listened to information about the forming of our country in it's early stages and the about the leaders commitment to... More
We had a half price coupon for this museum so we decided to check it out. Like others have said you enter a room and have a seat. The last one to sit will push the button and the recording starts. In front of you are the wax figures and each one is spot lighted when it is their turn... More
The wax faces aren't exactly the faces in the portraits. In fact, some are terrifying. :-) But it was entertaining to see. The Hall of First Ladies was more interesting in terms of costumes from each era. My wife remembered this from when she was a kid. And now, it is burned into my brain. But it was a nice... More
After being in Gettysburg for a while, I wanted to shake things up a bit without leaving out a historical aspect. I am a history teacher and highly enjoyed this exhibit. Each presidents achievements are highlighted for about a minute each. It is enjoyable for all ages. Also, they had an amazing American history gift shop. It was very different... More
