As soon as you walk into the Museum, you will feel an overwhelming sense of history and awe as most places in Gettysburg have a tendency to invoke that emotion. There were an impressive,breathtaking collection of memorabilia from the Civil War - World War II...More
On August 25th I was with a group of people who had Stewart as the guide. He was really knowledgeable about the history of Gettysburg, we stopped at 4 interested points and mostly found out that I have had some long distance relationship that fought...More
I’d love to give this a real review and I’m sure that the museum itself is probably great! But I was in town for four days and every single time I tried to go it was either closed, or other large groups of people were...More
I’ve been to Gettysburg numerous times, but never to this museum before; which a friend highly recommended. The museum is the result of collector Erik Dorr. As a fellow collector; I can fully appreciate the full scope of Erik’s efforts and hard work to amass...More
I was a bit disappointed with this museum. The corridors were all narrow and cluttered. Nazi Paraphernalia and Memorabilia occupy far too much of the available display space inside the museum. Hitler's silverware, swastika's and other offensive material from the "Third Reich" are on display....More
I went to the Gettysburg Museum of History back in 2009 and enjoyed my visit. This is do-able in a short amount of time to fill in your trip if you need, and of course, to remember history which is vital.
The museum contains everything you can imagine from civil war firearms to The uniforms of Dick Winters of Band of Brothers fame to that of Audi Murphy. More is better here and the Curator Erik is knowledgeable beyond belief. Highly recommended.
yes they do have handicap accesses. the movie theatre cost fifteen dollars per person and i think admission was under ten dollars per person . if you want tour extra cost. you can check the website to find the address .
We are headed to Gettysburg for a long weekend at the end of July with our kids (14, 12, 9). We are doing Hersheypark on Thursday staying overnight there and driving to Gettysburg in the morning Friday staying until Sunday morning. Friday: I was thinking we would do the Visitor Center/Museum in the morning about 1-2 hours break for lunch then schedule a guided tour for the afternoon. Return to hotel relax and enjoy the pool and do a little later dinner reservation for the Dobin House that...More

Thank you for the great information!! The park ranger schedule is awesome. I see some things my kids will like that I think will work great with our timeline. The restaurant and picnic location recommendations sound great for us. Thanks again!
A few questions about the reenactment (12 Replies)
I will be attending the reenactment on Sunday, July 7th. I was wondering about what time is the living history village and the sutlers' area up and running and what time do they shut down? Are the military reenactors' camps also available for viewing? I was thinking of seeing them before the first battle of the day or after the last battle of the day. I don't think I'll have that much time to see them between the battles because I plan to go into town to visit the Gettysburg Museum of History...More

They actually responded pretty quickly. Good news is there's no charge for the spectator parking. Now to hope I don't get caught in a traffic jam trying to return for the last battle.
