Why You Should Go...

Civil War Tails Diorama Museum has something for everyone –from history buffs to cat-lovers.

This unique museum features historically accurate Civil War scenes depicted in a way you have never seen befor

Civil War Tails is full of handmade miniature soldiers so you can see 3-D snapshots of the Civil War. Get a bird’s-eye view of a battle or get down to eye-level and see the soldier’s point of view. All soldiers are made with a 1-to-1 ratio, so each model represents 1 soldier during the real battle, not 10 or 20. Since they’re made to scale, if a hill looks big to climb under fire, that’s because it was.

Experience scenes from Gettysburg like Pickett’s Charge and the fighting on Little Round Top. See the ironclad ships USS Monitor and CSS Virginia (Merrimack) or the bombardment of Fort Sumter. See cavalry jumping off a cliff into a river, peek inside the ironclads, find the only dog in the museum, and learn why there are Japanese samurai cats in Gettysburg.
