2015 marks the 100th anniversary of Licensed Battlefield Guides at Gettysburg, which means licensed guides can take you on a personal two-hour tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield by car or by bus.
A must see...the Visitor Center does not tell you handicapped is allowed to drive thru the cemetery
Museum tour and film
Visit the site of one of the most important turning points in the American Civil War. Today, Gettysburg National Military Park offers battlefield tours and other events for visitors from near and far.
@ the museum
A must see! Drive or walk thru history.
Loved everything about it
Watch the movie at the visitors center and look at the movement maps to get a better idea of directions on the field when you reach them. 1 monument marks 300 union troops
#9 on top 25 landmarks in the world. Massive. Intense - narration brought battlefield into life. So much history!
We love visiting Gettysburg and this is always our first stop. The museum area is great and the film and cyclorama is excellent.
Buy the self tour CD in the gift shop. You can listen to it in your car while you tour the battlefields at your own pace!
I stayed a few hours and must come back for a much longer visit. Awesome history to explore.
Know, understand and enjoy our history
Gettysburg is known as one of the most famous American battlefields. Visitors can explore the site that marked the turning point of the Civil War and where Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address.
Great way to start the Gettysburg experience.
Do the driving tour first. Then visit the museum when all the buses and tour groups are gone - usually after 1pm.
Such a nice place loaded with information!
Search for "Civil War music" on your Spotify, Rdio etc. and add some tunes to the tour.
The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the American Civil War. Today, Gettysburg National Military Park offers a full range of group programs, battlefield tours and other events to explore.
In 1863, in this small town in southern Pennsylvania, something happened that profoundly influenced our country's development and shaped our national character.
You have just checked into the place where the inspiration for President Abraham Lincoln's immortal "Gettysburg Address" was formed.
Must start by visiting the cyclorama, film and museum at the visitor center. Then audio or guided tour is the battlefields. An amazing slice of dramatic history !
Very well organized auto tour (self-drive).
Nehmt Euch Zeit mit.
A must for visiting Gettysburg. .. the Victorian Carriage Company was a great way to tour the massive park.
Great customer service & the book shop was very informative. Enjoyed my day a the park, need to make a second trip to finish seeing all the sights.
Gorgeous new space for the Visitor Center but don't eat here - it was $6 for a very tiny fountain soda and glass of water. Food is wayyy over priced.
A great place to learn about the Battle of Gettysburg and the significant role it had on the Civil War. I recommend the mini documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman and the Cyclorama-truly beautiful.
This is probably the greatest military parks in the United State. Put this on your bucket list.
We did the driving toyrs with the CDs--I would recommend this for all groups except children
I liked it here. That should count for SOMETHING.
You can rent the driving cd at dime local hotels for $10
History at its best... But worst... Amazing things happened here.
If taking a bus tour, be sure to get to the bus shelter 10 minutes early.
Beautiful day to explore....
Gettysburg is one of my all time favorite places to visit. It's a great American Memorial to all that lost their lives here, North or South. Everyone should read about the Civil War and visit here.
Nice to drive thru when there's not a lot if tourists yet for the season!!
Great folks here. Battery went dead in the van, the ranger service came right out and gave us a jump!
After exploring inside, have a seat with the 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, read the Gettysburg Address on the nearby rock, and absorb the history that happened here July 1st through 3rd in 1863.
Are you lost, bro?
Totally cool don't get caught on the battlefield after 10 pm
Awesome place everything is free. I recommend getting the driving tour DVD it is so worth it
Indispensable for those want to learn on civil war
The Cyclorama is outstanding
Too much to see in a few hours.
Just a little south.
A family trip
You can sample some if the fudge at the gift store when you are there, too!
