The videos and displays make history come alive. Good place to start your visit to Gettysburg. Probably not good for young children as the displays of hospital rooms and operating rooms are horrifying, but that was the way it was and we shouldn't forget it!

There is also a very small gift shop with reasonably priced souvenirs so might want a little cash for this. We actually got our tickets with a package we purchased through the B&B we stayed at.

We purchased the tickets at the museum. No need to get them ahead of time.
