Wish we had done this as our first museum!

There are 4 floors each with it's own portion of the story. There are some real life exhibits that... read more

The entire museum is detailed and has amazing 3D exhibits. It’s definitely worth the visit. The cupola tour was also very cool. Nate gave an amazing tour, very detailed and the view from the top is breathtaking. I would highly suggest the entire experience!

Son and I visited in June 2019. We took the unguided tour walking and visiting the different floors of the museum.

Also, took the Cupola Tour which is well worth the money. The tour guide explaining and showing the different locations of the battlefield from a place which was important for the Union on the first day was amazing. He was very informed and knowledgeable and answered the questions my son asked very well.

the seminary museum as quite interesting as it begins with how the seminary began and functioned before the soldiers came marching in and utilized the cupola as a lookout station, and the floors below as a hospital for primarily the first day's battle wounded. as you progress through you learn of different members of the town and their experiences.

Visited Seminary Ridge Museum in Gettysburg, PA. A must see experience. Took tour on our own so we could spend as much time on the floors of the museum. There are 4 floors to visit and if you pay extra, you can take a guided tour up to the Cupola. We did not do that part of the tour. It was very eye opening to visit and cannot imagine what it was like in there at the time of the Civil War. Would highly recommend!

We toured the museum on our first day. If you are trying to get a sense of the flow of the battle it is a good place to start after a more general tour. The seminary was there during the battle and the Cupola view allows you to see all around the important sites from the battle. You have to pay extra to take the cupola tour but I think it was well worth it. You got a guide to tell you the story of the seminary, the first day battle, and they take you up to the cupola. If you can’t climb steep stairs then you might not be able to get up there. The view is breathtaking. The rest of the museum also tells the story of individuals who are associated with it. It served as a hospital after the first day as did virtually any larger public building due to generating 50000 casualties in a town of 2400.
