  • Wonderful place, well maintained and so many friendly helpful volunteers there. We went in the tremendous heat and got to give them credit for still getting into character and costume and giving such enthusiastic performances and so much information. The video, the cyclorama was amazing with great detail and brilliant sound. The museum has so much information and a couple of the volunteers have such expert knowledge on things. I highly recommend this as an all day trip or a day and a half. The local cafe is good as well, good variety and well priced. Lastly is the battlefield tour, we did the self guided audio tour, there are two options to purchase, I went with the one with Stephan Lang narrating because I loved him in the movie Gettysburg, but that is a great option as well, otherwise you can take a bus tour or have a guide drive you around in your car. Remember that this is hallowed ground.

  • This should be a required visit for every American. It's so important to know our country's history, learn about our different paths, and understand why things are the way they are. Gettysburg is an ideal place to take in all that you can surrounding this pivotal time in the US. You can't go wrong with any of the tour options, it's a beautifully restored area, and a well-marked experience in terms of all the monuments. If I could recommend an order to your activities, I'd do the video, then the tour or the park, and finish up with the museum to fill in all the details.

  • A very interesting spot and a must see if you enjoy history. The battlefield was way larger than I anticipated (the whole town), the visitor center was clean, the staff was super friendly, they made the experience interesting, while not undermining the significance of this place or being disrespectful to the fallen . There are several options for the tour, go with a tour bus, self guided with an information CD, self guided with out the CD, or hiring a guide. We took the totally self guided tour. Unfortunately bad weather set in so we did not see as much as we would have liked to, however this gives us a reason to come back.

  • So much history. Battleground tours are excellent. Ghost tour of Mary Wade House & history behind it is excellent also. Great Seafood Buffet ($42) at Pikes Restaurant & Lounge. Never a free moment with so much to see & do. Highly recommend visiting Gettsburg.

  • Definitely worth a visit but some planning is required to make your visit worthwhile. The entire battlefield is huge and is dotted by monuments and historic markers that it is easy to get monument fatigue after a while, and still miss out on the most notable sites. If you don't have much time planning, you can book a bus tour that shows you the most significant sites. The bus tour we joined from the Visitor Center was disappointing so I would suggest other tour operators in town. Be sure to read the tour's fine print and reviews to know what you're getting. Otherwise, you can do a self-guided tour and ask for resources (for free) at the Visitor Center or do some prior online research. The best experience is probably a re-enactment of the entire battle but none was available during our visit. The museum at the Visitor Center was otherwise helpful in making the Gettysburg story come to life. I highly recommend a visit. If you have some extra time, I also recommend visiting the Eisenhower National Historic Site to learn about the life and times of the 34th President. You can also do a walking tour of downtown Gettysburg and explore its many beautiful buildings.
