Self guided tour of this pre civil war home and law office of David Wills. This is the house where Lincoln stayed in while in town to deliver his famous address. They even have the original bed that Lincoln slept in.

This where Lincoln stayed when he came to Gettysburg to help dedicate the new soldier's cemetery. He finished his Gettysburg Address here the night before. It's now a National Park Service unit of the Gettysburg National Military Park. There is a nominal fee to enter.

If you enjoy Lincoln history this is a unique place to see. Lincoln spent the night here before given his Gettysburg address. The original bedroom furniture is on display. It is worth the $6.00 admission.

If you really want to read, see, and listen to everything the museum has to offer, I would say 11/2 to 2 hours.
