See the ENTIRE battlefield at one time and watch the troop movements for ALL three days of battle. The battlefield covers 6,000 acres, an area large enough to be difficult to visualize. The Gettysburg Diorama will put the battle into perspective when you see the ENTIRE battlefield as it appeared in 1863. Carefully researched and meticulously assembled, the Diorama contains over 20,000 hand-painted soldiers, horses, cannons and buildings. Picture the battle through the eyes of Generals Meade and Lee as a narrative unfolds in miniature with a light and sound effects experience you won't forget.

This was part of the package....museum, movie and diorama. The diorama is fascinating for what it is (I won't tell you) and covered part of the overall battle on day 3. Something to see.

The Battle Of Gettysburg in a scale model recreation. This is the largest military diorama in the United States at over 800 square feet of display. While this is a massive presentation, it is seriously dated - despite the ( recent - since I was last here in the later 1990s with a class field trip) slide presentation playing on... More

The kids loved this diorama of the battlefield and it does help to see the miniaturized depiction of the battlefield before going out to see the real thing.

Dioramas used to be quite the thing but are not so common in the digital age. I love them and this is not only a good one from the standpoint of diorama-lovers but also tell the story of Gettysburg wonderfully

Provides a wonderful bird's-eye perspective of the battle. Amazing work of art with a great narrative of the three day battle.

When I arrived I didn't have a high expectation (it was a regular shop) but once we bought our tickets and went in for the presentation I was amazed. They had a great presentation, amazing exhibit and attraction.

Did not know what to expect. The sounds and sites of the battles was way beyond what one would expect. The diorama is an achievment well worth experiencing.

The Battle of Gettysburg covered a HUGE amount of territory. The diorama give you a good overview of the full area. The narration does get a bit confusing with all the units involved and all the Generals in the battle. If you are a Civil War buff, it is probably not too bad, but for the uninitiated, it can be...
