  • My two sons and I visited this museum and gift shop not knowing what to expect. What we did know is that it featured trains and my youngest son LOVES trains! After our visit, I highly recommend anyone visiting Gettysburg to take a stop at this lovely place. Anyone who loves trains will enjoy it in addition to other items in the collection not limited to trains. You get two shows for the price of admission - one being a simulated train ride that truly fooled my son into thinking we left the building! A+++
  • Very nice place to visit! A must see😁
  • You will learn a lot about Lincoln here and ride a train simulation of his burial journey. It's very interesting with plenty to learn. They also have a good size gift shop.
  • Nice if you like trains and are interested in Abe Lincoln history
  • Had fun watching the toy trains with my children.

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.
