THE CYCLORAMA IS AN INCREDIBLE painting of the Battle of Gettysburg. If unrolled it would be 100 yeards long and 4 stories high. It was painted by a French artist in the 19th century! Here, it has been curled into a circle so that the battle surrounds you 360 degrees. Through lighting and sound effects plus an expert narrator, you will learn about the battle and also about the painting. It is amazing.

Address: In the museum
