Create an itinerary including Gettysburg Museum of History
Get a sense of Americana from the broad, diverse collection at Gettysburg Museum of History, housing artifacts from the Civil War and World Wars I and II, as well as items associated with U.S. presidents and pop icons. Made famous by the popular television show "American Pickers," the museum is owned and curated by passionate collector Erik L. Dorr. See Civil War memorabilia, such as a frock coat and carbine rifle, as well as some rather bizarre relics, including a lock of Marilyn Monroe's hair and a portion of a car seat stained with JFK's blood.

  • Absolutely beautiful! Beautiful building!! Beautiful displays!! This is definitely something everyone needs to experience! You WILL respect everything we are today!
  • Interesting museum in Gettysburg (not just Civil war history). It is one man's collection and is free, so make a donation or buy something from the gift shop.
  • This is one of the best museums in town. There are so many unique things to see and there is more than just Gettysburg artifacts. You can find pieces of leather from the car Kennedy was shot in, Marilyn Monroe's bra, Roman crucifixion nails, pieces from the Vatican and so much more. Admission to the museum is free but well worth a hearty donation. Definitely a place to check out!
  • Jam packed museum with interesting bits and pieces. So much that you may miss some unique pieces so best to take your time as there are some surprising things there.
  • Awesome museum with so many cool historical items! A LOT bigger than it looks on the outside
