Gettysburg Cyclorama, also known as The Battle of Gettysburg, is a historic painting located at Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. The painting is considered to be important as it represents a popular art form from the 1800s. Four different versions were painted showing the details of the battle. But, today only two are available as others have been destroyed over the decades. French artist Paul Dominique Philippoteaux painted this 360° cylindrical painting and the one we see today is the restored version. A real treat for art lovers and history buffs, consider visiting the park to admire this significant painting.

Gettysburg Cyclorama Reviews & Ratings
This is an awesome painting! My daughter made the comment, "It looks like you could walk into it." If you enjoy art, this enhancement assists in making the history come alive; this is the thing to see.
Amazing in detail .. you can spot individuals and different actions that took place
Fantastic facility and historical tool, but first, a few things I would recommend considering if you are bringing young children OR if you yourself are easily overstimulated: I might not recommend it to parents of children younger than about fourth or fifth grade as it can be a very scary and loud experience for obvious reasons and at such a young age, they might not be able yet to understand and appreciate its historical value, especially if they simply become overwhelmed with the experience and close down. Keep in mind that the goal of the cyclorama is to make you feel like you are in the position of a soldier in the midst of a great war! On a similar note, beware if you are an anxious or easily startled person! I highly recommend the experience to any and every adult BUT I highly suggest mentally preparing yourself beforehand if you are anything like me! I am in my 20s and while I greatly appreciated the historic value and was very moved by it all, I was on the cusp of a panic attack the entire time and I would rather not break down crying or hyperventilate in front of children or really anyone at all. 😅 Otherwise a very immersive, technologically advanced tool for history lovers and those who would like to learn more about the Civil War and Pennsylvania history! By the time you are done with your visit, you really get the sense of just how much of a turning point this location and its battles were in the war!
Great for learning history
Beautiful and left me speechless
