  • An awesome, new museum for your Gettysburg trip! Exhibits include the first day of the battle in detail, the experience in civil war hospitals, and the issues and stories surrounding slavery. Price of admission is fairly cheap, and while the optional cupola tour can dig into your wallet a bit it's totally worth it for history buffs in my opinion. So if you want a cheaper museum visit on your trip and want to know more about the first day of the battle this is the place to go ma friends. Peace!
  • This really is a hidden treasure. I have been to gettysburg numerous times over my lifetime and never stopped here. But it is well worth it. Even with kids. They couldn't take the cupola tour, but we're invited to participate in a fact finding scavenger hunt. Loved it!
  • Be sure to go up to the copula with the park ranger after visiting the Shriver House.
  • Great visit..learned something new and the Cupola tour is worth it!
  • Put together well, not over whelming with stuff. Free for active military.

Where to stay in Gettysburg

Though Gettysburg offers plenty of lodging options to suit every visitor's budget, remember that you must reserve your room at least a few months ahead of time if you plan to attend the popular battle reenactments. Many inns in the heart of town offer both a sense of history and many modern amenities, including exercise facilities and both indoor and outdoor pools. You can also choose to stay at a comfortable hotel just northwest of the area's historical battlefield complex, located only minutes from downtown.
