We spent quite a bit of time looking at the diorama. It helped set the mood for wandering the battlefields and reflecting on the appearance during the battle.

This was our favorite attraction. The models are so realistic. The show was great. Then you go downstairs to another attraction and it’s awesome. Pretty interactive and very informative.

A very interesting overview of the battlefield. Approximately 10,000 acres recreated to scale. A great place to go before visiting battlefield to give you an idea of the location of things.

I first saw this painting when it was on display in the old cyclorama. What they have done is given it a much better environment to be displayed. In addition, they have added a sound and light show that really brings the painting alive.
