“Fantastic” 5 of 5 stars
Review of Gettysburg Diorama

Gettysburg Diorama
Ranked #14 of 95 things to do in Gettysburg

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.

“The Battle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Very moving only wish you could have had a few more minutes to walk around the entire area. I thought it was a little rushed but I also understand that there are many people that have to be accomodated

There's a giant A frame on the front of the building...the A is for Awesome. If you like models or tiny stuff this a must see.
