Remarkable military park with excellent informative locations. Large number of memorials add to the interest. I hired a guide for a couple of hours which I highly recommend.

The National Military Park is best experienced with a tour guide who can take you through each of the three days of the historic battle at Gettysburg and point out many landmarks that you would otherwise miss. I highly recommend visiting the park.

Picturesque battlefield with numerous monuments to explore. Recommend multiple hours for exploration with prime quiet visiting time near sunrise. Visitors Center provides excellent context, particularly with the Cyclorama painting. Located surrounding a charming, "living" small town with shops and restaurants.

There is so much to see. We did the self guided auto tour and it took us most of the day to see everything, but it was interesting to walk the grounds and see things from the soldiers point of view.

We picked up an audio guide and did the auto tour of the battlefield. I highly recommend doing that. The audio guide took us through the entire battle from start to finish as you drove through the stops. It really helped the kids understand and...More

We did the audio tour of the Battlefield and we had serious civil war people in our group and took A day and a half to do the battlefield tour. If you are just a ride through type of visitor you might be able to do both.
