We visited the Gettysburg Railroad Station Museum with our licensed intown guide. He did a great job making history come alive for us. It was wonderful to be in the very same building when Lincoln walked. Be sure to see this museum.

This is a great little free museum of the old Gettysburg railroad station. It's worth an hour of your time, as the railroad plays an important part in "why Gettysburg"

The train station was an interesting self guided tour. The station greeted Lincoln on his trip to Gettysburg and the restoration of the station was well-done. Worth a stop.

Saw this years ago before it was restored and was pretty depressed to see such a piece of history deteriorated. Then they did a great job of restoring it. Worth seeing, good piece of history.....
