Seminary Ridge Museum, Gettysburg Reviews
Really enjoyed the museum. Well worth the extra money for the cupola tour. Our tour guide was very informative and engaging and you can't beat the view! more »
There are 4 floors each with it's own portion of the story. There are some real life exhibits that startled us at first. Very realistic but well done. more »
Awesome! The museum is so well laid out and informative. An extra bonus is going up in the cupola just as Buford and Reynolds did on July 1st!! Nate was our guide for that and was fantastic!! Do not miss this place!!
Very good. The medical floor was an eye opener, be prepared for that one it was graphic but pertinent. Well done.
