We took a group of Boy Scouts on a tour of the Battlefield Military Museum and everyone had a great time. We should have scheduled more time at the museum than we did (only about three hours). The light up map display was a must see before touring the battlefield. It definately helped orient us to the topography.

Ok , I hate to complain. The Battlefield is amazing. You can do a driving tour for 2 to 3 hours there is so much to see. But the museum and gift shop is very dilapidated. In need of a lot of work. The Cyclorama painting is currently under repair so that is not available to view to the general public at the time of this review. I've heard it is very worth seeing but I did not get to. Do not waste your money on the 30 minute touring film. The gift shop has a great selection of Gettysburg history dvd's and vhs's as well as many books , bookmarks , pins , war memorabilia. I got a great book of Abraham Lincoln's poetry there. Reasonable prices. Many helpful women working in there as well. The museum itself mainly is filled with weapondry. Hundreds of guns. If you are into weapons it's a must see.

Gettysburg Battlefield area is just amazing! Driving through the areas where the civil war was fought gives you a real sense of what the battle was all about. The museums, tour and stories told by some of the "characters" on the site are so educational and informative. I recommend, at the very least, buying a tour tape in the Cyclorama, if you can't get a live guide. There's so much to see that you will spend at least a full day at the battlefield. This being a National Park, driving around the battlefield is free. There is no admission! A great family destination for a road trip vacation.
