Those are great dioramas. I'm not at home now for access to my books on the battlefield, but those have been around for a long time. They were there at my first visit in 1956. I believe the museum opened in 1952. They were probably there then.

The figures are large. Foot figures are about 6" tall, maybe more.

Garryowen, Agree, both were there when I first visited there with my parents in '59. One note of caution about the Reno retreat one; I believe the portion showing a trumpeter dragging another soldier by the hand while mounted is intended to portray the attempted rescue of Lt Benny Hodgson, but he (Hodgson) wasn't hit until he was in the LBH River, not while on the western bank.
