Fodor's Review

Formerly the American Civil War Wax Museum, the Gettysburg Heritage Center opened in 2015 after renovations and the addition of a gift shop to present the story of the Civil War era and the Battle of Gettysburg through artifacts, a 20-minute film, 3-D programs, and interactive exhibits that include an educational scavenger hunt. Battlefield tour options include a Victorian Carriage and horseback tour (prices vary), a "history nerds" tour ($39.99), and an iPad tour (up to 5 hours, $44.99) with Augmented Reality scenes that allow you to relive moments in history while standing on the very ground that each event occurred 150 years. Complimentary Living History camps that demonstrate what life was like for the Civil War soldiers are offered most weekends from April to November.
