Gettysburg National Military Park - Museum And Visitor Centre, Gettysburg Reviews - Write a Review
What can I say that can convince you to visit? Extremely well maintained and I like that the park is making tremendous strides to bring the battlefields back to the '63 look. I also like and admire that the park took a strong stance on Confederate markers and monuments. If you want to visit, plan on at least two days. Many skip the town or think its just gift shops. A lot of history there and and the best way to see the progression of the battle from day 1 to 2.
This should be a "must see" for every United States citizen. We were there for three straight days and could not get enough. We didn't want to leave. When you visit the Gettysburg National Military Park, I recommend using a personal private guide to tour the park. Our guide was absolutely amazing and so informative. He drove us in chronological order and was very detailed in his information. What was suppose to be a 2 hour tour turned into 4 1/2 hours because we were his only clients that day. This place is amazing and well preserved
Gettysburg is one of the most outstanding National Parks in the United States. I'M,be been there multiple time and always new things to see. The park food court in the in visitor center is excellent for lunch. On ones first trip do the driving tour or hire a park guide. The book store/gift shop is outstanding. Gettysburg is highly recommended for all.
There's so much history here that you could easily turn a day visit into a weekend or longer stay. The visitor center and museum are just a starting place to experience life and history from those times. The park area itself is quite large, with dozens of monuments and landmarks. Several shops around town offer more ways to learn, through self-guided audio tours (played within your car as you follow the route through the park) to guided tours led by park staff or carriage/bus drivers. Give yourself time and come prepared: this park has a lot to offer and so much to teach.
Great place, very crowded on a Saturday in the fall. Get here early and I'd recommend a walking tour with the rangers they are extremely knowledgeable. The shows a be mueasum could easily take a good part of the day if you're really into it. The auto tour could take a good 4 hours as well. Some time spent both watching Gettysburg and understanding the battle will really help with your appreciation of it all.
