The presentation was informative especially for non Civil War History buffs, but is over priced for what you get. The people were very nice but overall I would not recommend. Save your money and go to the National Park's "Point Park" next door.

The map and film are interesting but there's only one small room of displays for the museum part. Many of the display items aren't marked either. It doesn't seem worth the extra money.

This is a very informative way to actually have the battle brought to life, The front is the gift store and you would pay to see the diorama and the movie. For those who consider it a over rated and overly priced venue, my suggestion...More

It was interesting, but a bit pricey to see diagram and movie. But it did put it in perspective . Was very informative.

We really found the interactive map very helpful in understanding the battles around Chattanooga although the people next door at the Park Service office/store were much better at explaining the battle above the clouds. You really need to do both.
