Hall Of Presidents & First Ladies
Featuring The area’s only complete wax collection of American Presidents and their first ladies as well as a beautiful gift shop. The Hall of Presidents is located across the street from the Gettysburg Tour Center and next to the main entrance of the National Cemetery.
It is incredible to be able to see what our Presidents really looked like and to hear the words attributed to them as if the words came from the very lips of the figures themselves. The beautiful background murals, showing the development of America, are the work of Charles Morganthaler, one of our country’s truly great contemporary artists and who did extensive restoration painting on the Cyclorama painting in the early 1960’s prior to its move from the 1913 building across the streets to the Mission 1966 Building on the battlefield.
Here in one great collection is the history of America as revealed by our Presidents telling their own stories in words and stirring music. The men who symbolized our nation, in whose hands our forbearers entrusted their welfare, in their own words and speaking from their own lips tell:
“The Story of Your Land.” This is your heritage…The Story of the Presidents…as they might have told it… The Story of America.
The Hall of First Ladies present authentic 1/3 size reproductions of the First Ladies in their inaugural gowns. The famous Smithsonian Collection of dresses are portrayed on the petite sized first ladies who have been created to depict the same hair style and divine look which they had displayed during the presidential inauguration.
The Hall of Presidents Exhibit copyrighted and patent pending 1956.
