New Gettysburg visitor center opens 14 April 2008

A new museum and visitor center will open at Gettysburg on April 14, 2008. The cyclorama will be ready in September 2008.
AP notes:

The cyclorama, an 1884 oil painting designed to place viewers in the middle of the climactic battle, is still being restored. It is scheduled to open in late September. The massive painting was created in 14 sections comprising a 360-degree canvas that depicted Pickett's Charge, the dramatic Union Army stand against Confederate troops July 3, 1863.
