A very interesting overview of the battlefield. Approximately 10,000 acres recreated to scale. A great place to go before visiting battlefield to give you an idea of the location of things.

Call first... off season may be the reason. 9-6pm in November. I called at 5:30pm just to double check.

I first saw this painting when it was on display in the old cyclorama. What they have done is given it a much better environment to be displayed. In addition, they have added a sound and light show that really brings the painting alive.

Make sure to start your Gettysburg tour with the wonderful show. The colors and sounds are engaging and it is hard to believe that this is an actual oil painting!

Don't miss this!! It is amazing, feels as if you were actually watching the battle. What makes it more astounding is that it was painted in the 19th century. The detail is perfect.
