    This is GREAT! A family favorite. We can hardly go to Gettysburg without visiting the Wax Museum. Great for kids and adults. Love the lay out. Its like an adventure inside. The long dark halls with lit displays along with the wax figures makes for a creepy yet unique experience. A must do.

    This is a great place for kids. They have a lot of great displays here about all kinds of people connected with the Civil War, like John Brown, Harriet Tubman, etc. We thought it was great.

    Wax museum would be fine if I walked in with NO expectations... Not worth the $6.95 per person admission.... Disappointed with the displays! Spend $8 and go to the National museum!
