|Went to see the cyclorama late on a Tuesday afternoon about an hour before closing. Me, my wife and only seven other people, were able to see ( and photograph) everything throughout the presentation and nobody moved us on afterwards until we were ready to go. I loved it, the presentation of this great work of art is first class. The museum, though not Gettysburg specific, is, as most things are these days, designed to be Educational and I think they have made a good job of it. Museum cafeterias I stay well away from, you know that on entry you are going to be ripped off! The gift shop is , again, just high priced tat, pretty poor really. The books they had are all available on the net at cheaper prices. We found a much better little gift shop in the museum at the hotel where we stayed at Gen. Lees HQ. I regard the $55 that I paid for LBG Richard Bellamy to take me on a one on one tour of Barlows Knoll, Culps Hill and then the Wheatfield as the best money spent in my two and a half weeks in the States.
