Things to See in Gettysburg
I was amazed at the beauty of the artwork, both 2 and 3 dimensional. In the foreground of both of these examples, you will see 3-dimensional reconstructions (the fence and the cannon with surrounding grounds and foliage) that blend seamlessly into the painted background.
During the show, you see the sky change color as the sun rises, watch and hear bombs explode all around you as the battle is explained.
My only complaint is they usher you out fairly quickly, but they do give you some time to walk around and see the painting after the explanation is over.
The museum is included in the price and between the 2 attractions, it takes the better part of a day to complete.
There's lots to see here to keep you coming back.
