Opening in 1962, the National Civil War Wax Museum continues to be a world class attraction in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Featuring over 300 wax figures in more than 35 tableaux, the Civil War is brought to life for visitors to this historic location. The museum changed its name to the American Civil War Museum in 2004, and guests might not realize how extensive the wax scenes are by the new name unitil they see it for themselves.
A close up of the entrance. The Confederate and Union flags adorn the exterior, while columns grace the front doors. The building looks basically the same today as when this picture was taken. Of course, the lettering has been removed.
