    Plan on spending the majority of your day here. There’s so much to see and do. We bought the auto
    Audio tour and it worked great. I’ve done many tours with a guide and some by audio. I like the freedom of being on our own with a guide. We were able to stop at any time and spend as long as we wanted. Statues upon statues, info boards to read and to just enjoy the views. The cemetery is also worth a stop. Going by map alone will be a little big confusing. We had one & it quickly was put away. Audio was so much better.

    This is the perfect starting point when visiting Gettysburg. Entrance is free to gather maps or information and stroll through the gift shop. Admission fees are required to the museum, the movie and the cyclorama and I recommend all three!

    The museum itself is amazing. So many unique and special articles, not just from the American Civil War, but from other periods of American history. Erik Dorr was not at the museum like I was hoping. He must be a fascinating person to have a discussion with. There were 2 employees present. One was very nice; the other was rude. Still, I am giving my visit an excellent rating because the one rude employee can't diminish how amazing this museum is. I highly recommend it. Give yourself at least one hour if you want to see everything.

    Our tour guide was excellent. She shared the history of the area, who lived in the home and how Jennie Wade ended up at the home. She explained how much Jennie was doing to help the soldiers before she was killed.

    Although we have spent quite a bit of time in Gettysburg, it was great to have a personal guide spend 2 hours taking us around the battlefield. Mike was so knowledgeable!
    I especially liked that he drove our car so that we could look at what he was talking about and we didn't have to worry about other cars or parking. I'd recommend the guided tour!

    This is a nice location with lots of history. Beautiful bridge. Had some paranormal activity while on ghost tour. I would recommend a visit to this bridge, especially at night.

    Three of us couples were visiting the Gettysburg area and it was recommended that we stop by this historic tavern for a great dining experience. Though we had to wait 30 minutes for a table, it was worth the wait! We eventually were seated in the downstairs dining room where you feel transported to the colonial era of the late 18th century. It was a darkened room with low lighting & candles and servers were dressed in colonial outfits.

    The menu provided a variety of choices and the pricing was reasonable. A few of us got the roasted chicken which was very tender and delicious. My wife ordered the blue cheese burger.

    Following our meal, we made our way to the museum portion of the Inn where you can ascend a steep set of wood stairs to see a hiding place used for former slaves that made their way north as well as a collection of period artifacts.

    The Gettysburg Diorama at the Gettysburg History Center was worth seeing. We were able to park our RV behind the Gettysburg Heritage Center less than a block away. The history center had a huge gift shop. If you are a fan of MAGA, Trump and Confederate paraphernalia, you will love it. If not, find out what time the next showing of the diorama is scheduled for and arrive just a few minutes in advance.

    Excellent tour. Brian did an amazing job talking about the building itself and the battle. The three floors of the museum are well themed. Highly recommend.
