“A Great New Attraction that Adds More”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Was it possible to add another museum, do it right, and contribute something not found elsewhere? The answer is yes. They have done it. Each floor is an education and it tells the story of the setting and the seminary so well. There are not as many artifacts but that does not matter. They are great artifacts and you really learn how the Seminary played a part in the coming of the war and the battle. The place is pristine, well-kept, staffed great, and worth a visit. Go to the newest and most interesting attraction in Gettysburg. Take your school group and see and hear the personal stories. They drive it home.

“Well Done - Interesting Perspective”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

I am so glad we took the time to experience this museum. It's very well done with loads of great information, displays, & stories. It's laid out so you can follow the events as they really happened and how the seminary played a part in all of it. Well worth the time!
