Attraction Details
Owner description: 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.

Enjoyed visiting the Diorama this fall. We were finally able to clearly see the layout of the 3 day battle and it helped us to understand it much better.

“Beautiful site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2014

I love this place, told everything that happened. The only part was the narrator was boring and could put you to sleep. Need to be a person talking instead of a recording.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2014

Just LOVED this. Was fortunate enough to take annual the "Behind the Painting" tour first. Then the next day came and saw the regular presentation. A bit "old fashioned" but still awesome. You don't have to be an artist to appreciate the magnitude of what you are seeing. For anyone interested in the arts - the is a required stop.
