We had bought a combo ticket which included the museum, but because of the time spent at the battlegrounds, etc, we were not able to see the museum on that day. The following day we explained this to the man at the entrance and no problem, we were allowed admission. Originally we thought it would be no big deal if we missed this museum. How wrong we were.
This is a wonderful museum which explains in detail the events leading up to the conflict and the battles which took place at Gettysburg. One of the rooms at the beginning allows you to listen to the opinions of both sides, then continues on to the battles. In the connecting rooms, each day's battles are explained in short films. Included in the rooms are artifacts and pictures. The pictures of those young soldiers.....
I could go on, but truthfully, this is a must see. We spent an hour here, but could easily spend two. If given the opportunity, I will go back. The exhibition ends on a powerful note. If you make it to Gettysburg, don't pass on the museum.
