“Get a Ranger to ride in your car”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Our guide was excellent. Our two hour tour turned into three. It was a great way for my mom to see the whole park.

“Best overview”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Stop here before going to the battlefield. Tour the entire visitor center and then you will have a great background from which to draw from that will explain just about everything you will see out in the park

“Rangers are so knowledgable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The free ranger programs should not be missed! Short or long, these people are the experts and provide insights you cannot get on your own. Don't miss the opportunity!

“An afternoon in history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The movie and diorama were good and I ended up spending about two hours in the museum before driving around the park. It's the first time I ever drove through a historical site complete with props and monuments and a story that is also history. Pretty awesome if your into knowing about what makes us Americans.
