    This museum, is free entry. Talks about how the people of the village, this bloody final battle lived. This House, the owner had to hide in your basement, as both armies fought Street by street and House by House. It is full of valuable information, and in addition it is interactive, visitors can touch what there is, because they are very well made replica.

    We visited the Rupp House and were greeted and absolutely entertained by Cindy, a volunteer there. Like many we encountered - she was pleasant and knowledgeable - but what really set her apart was her...  more »

    Went with a group of Boy Scouts. There is a lot of great history here. There are different levels of activities that have you search around the house for answers to clues. After you complete the challenge there are prizes for completion. The exhibits in this house are very well done and do a great job teaching about the properties use and history.

    Wonderful representation of the civilian perspective of the war. Thoroughly enjoyed the home and exhibits. Loved the curators---so amazingly knowledgeable and passionate. Often, I believe we tend to forget how the lives of the civilians and the town itself was affected by the war for decades to follow.

    While walking in Gettysburg today, we came upon the Rupp House History Center and decided to go in. Very glad we did! The house had a lot of information and had a video that you could view in the sitting area. The best part was the woman who was in the hallway when we entered dressed in period clothing. She was very knowledgeable about the house and the events that took place in Gettysburg July 1863. We really enjoyed listening to her narrative! Well worth the stop if you are in Gettysburg.

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.
