Good narrative....

The movie offered tells about the Battle for Missionary Mountain and surrounding Civil War battles. The gift shop offers lots of different items. Great for history buff.

we bought the tickets online thinking that this also included the entrance to the actual park itself. we were told at the counter that it was only for a movie and the museum. We asked for a refund and was told by a very rude employee no refunds. a free museum is next door.

Engaging for children as well as adults, helped orient us to the history of this area. Movie footage complemented with color-coded lights on a huge map showing where the action occurred.

Typical small museum and gift shop that you find outside different parks. Nice to browse through and they have a theater with a presentation for a fee. We did not do the theater but heard it was interesting

Very informative and great a great way of explaining the battle. The show explains the battles of Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge. As informative as this is, I do feel it is a bit pricey.

Very informative, and explained some geography to me who only lives 85 miles from here but never understood the geography of the battles in and around Chattanooga.

This attraction was updated in May 2016 Memorial Day weekend so I am unsure what these reviews are referring to that say its outdated and that they went Aug-Sept 2016. The map and theater now have a cool 180º projected movie with re-enactors an the surface has projection mapped battalions and army men fighting. While the map is a South... More

This show is about the battle of lookout mountain and missionary ridge. The map and visual effects are very outdated and the voiceover is by a person who sounds like Charlston Heston reading an overly dramatic script. Its better than nothing, but not sure if its worth 10 dollars. Its a short film with a gift shop attached. AF for... More

This is not a museum! It is only a gift shop with a theater to watch a 20 minute movie that costs $10 per person! It's ridiculous! I felt so swindled! There is an actual museum next door that is run by the park service and is FREE. We asked for a refund and thankfully they gave the refund.
