This is a must visit for anyone living in or interested in American History. The foundation does an excellent job providing many perspectives on the Civil War and more specifically the Battle of Gettysburg. We did the audio car tour this time which was yet another perspective.

The highlight of this visit was how accommodating they were with my limited mobility. I did not have to ask, they saw my needs and the walker that I was using and they took it upon themselves to make sure that my seating in the auditorium was adequate and they escorted me to and from the cyclorama with the elevator. I was quite impressed with how in tune the workers and interpreters were with the needs of their guests. Another benefit was that they had benches spread out through the museum which was very helpful.

We did not get to go to Eisenhower this time, but I kept hearing that only the grounds were open. They were not doing tours yet. My one concern for someone who may have limited mobility is the parking. If I didn't have my husband to drop me off I would have had a problem. The parking lot was packed and from our other visits here, always is.

This museum does an excellent job of explaining what led up to the battle at Gettysburg and why it happened in that location at that time, as well as its impact on North and South, the local region, the civilians, the war, and long-term issues like identification and burial of war dead, notification of kin, national memorials, etc. And, of course, the Gettysburg Address, possibly the greatest statement ever made about American ideals. We visited the museum first, then the battlefield, and it made a huge difference in how we viewed and understood the battlefield itself. Don't miss it!

This is very well done. The film is good the cyclorama is unbelievable and a must see. The museum was really good. Just didn't have enough time to justice to the museum tour. Coupled this visit with a self-drive audio tour.
