A rare treat is now available at the Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor’s Center as the Gettysburg Foundation is now offering after-hours lectures of the cyclorama.

The famous Civil War icon was painted by Paul Philloteaux in 1883.

The cyclorama, recently restored and moved to the new center, is the country’s largest painting. Cyclorama expert Sue Boardman will lead the tours which are limited to fifty persons.

The tour entitled “An Evening with the Painting” is scheduled for March 22 at 5:00 p.m.; April 26 at 6:00 p.m.; May 23 at 6:00 p.m.; June 7 at 6:00 p.m.; July 5 at 6:00 p.m.; August 16 at 6:00 p.m.; September 27 at 6:00 p.m.; October 11 at 6:00 p.m.; November 14 at 4:30 p.m. and then again at 6:30 p.m.; and December 6 at 5:00 p.m.

Ms. Boardman will discuss the history of cycloramas and the massive restoration of the one at Gettysburg. The tour will include time showing the cyclorama in full light from the platform and a look under the diorama, plus a question and answer period.

Tickets for the tour are$20 for adults and $10 for children 6 to 12.
