Not sure how anyone could go to Gettysburg and not see this but I did inn 2002. Its been unfinished business ever since. Thye whole place is interesting but just knowing its Gettysburg address connection is enough to go. Pretty overwhelming.

This is a self-guided tour of the David Wills House. It has videos throughout the house, and many plaques to read. Items of interest are displayed as well.

To be in the room where A. Lincoln wrote the final version of the Gettysburg Address. And to see the bed he slept in --- maybe.

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