Join the Gettysburg Foundation at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center for a special "after-hours" program of the Gettysburg Cyclorama. Experience An Evening with the Painting for an exclusive, close-up look at the historic Gettysburg Cyclorama painting, hosted by Licensed Battlefield Guide, author and historian Chris Brenneman.

An Evening with the Painting explores the history of the genre of cycloramas and the history of the Gettysburg Cyclorama in this behind-the-scenes program. The presentation covers the fascinating creation of this historic piece of art, the rich symbolism found in the painting and an interesting discussion on the extensive conservation effort. Guests enjoy additional time on the viewing platform to observe in full light the remarkable, close-up details and distant battle scenes of the painting. Program ticket holders have the opportunity to journey under the diorama to see exactly how the illusion comes to life. There will be time for a question-and-answer session.
