Overview
More
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.

Where to start, you were stood on the battle field in the midst of all the mayhem, not knowing where the battle field finished and the painting started.

The diorama seems dated, with so many forms of multimedia available, however, seeing the diorama after taking the Battlefield Bus Tour, it was easier to see how the battle progressed over the three days. It was great for a rainy day activity with our grandson,...More

It is amazing seeing the detail of this diorama and learning about this magnificent part of history. The diorama is a must and when you see it is more than what you think it is. It has a history that is fascinating. Absolute must do.

The diorama was really nice. All the intricate details and the work that went into it. Awesome to see it all laid out. Allows the story to unfold. The little museum downstairs, I could have done without. Kinda hooky.
