  • Although it is a small museum, the exhibits are informative. No interactive exhibits for small kids, but the was several short videos to watch.
  • Nicely displayed museum using original furniture and a focus on historical accuracy commemorating Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.
  • This is the same company as wills house in boot hill. Smells of the colour green and post teenage angst. Occasionally spot a wild bear and Rasputin in their natural state. Well worth a visit. Ew.
  • Lots of history here, as with everywhere around Gettysburg. It was crazy to see the bed and room Lincoln stayed in the night before he gave the Gettysburg Address.
  • This is a good stop if your going for the history of 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.
