Stopped here so our 14 year old granddaughter could see where President Lincoln arrived. It's free and has a nice large model of the station as you enter. You can view the exhibits in 30 minutes or so and then pick up a little coupon book for Gettysburg!

Budget about 15 or 20 minutes to see all you need to see here. The building and it's historic significance make it worth a quick stop.

This is the station where Lincoln arrived when he came to make the Gettysburg Address. There are some exhibits and people there were friendly and informative. It is close to the Will's House so if you go there, you should stop in to see the train station.

This little museum was worth a visit. It wasn't filled to the gills with artifacts but what it did have was very interesting. The people there are quite knowledgeable about the Railroad Station and eagerly answered questions and were very informative about the area.

If you have a little time to spare it's worth to go and see , it's free and definitely piece of big history connected with 4th of July.

This is free to the public and only takes a few minutes. Well worth those few minutes to get a glimpse of the railroad station where Lincoln came into town in 1863. The attendant gave us a good synopsis of the history of the building and the rail line that came into town during that time.

Thank Piglet-CW
