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.

This is a spectacular 'must-see' start for the casual history traveler, and especially so for families with young children as it will likely spark their interest and imagination. Those who are well-steeped in the history of Gettysburg, not so much; your time would be better...More

The Diorama is a must when visiting Gettysburg. The show is a bit basic but the actual Diorama is just superb and gives you a excellent overview of the battle field. The figures are amazing.
