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.

The history of the building was very interesting. I really enjoyed the little model & the story of Lincoln's arrival; learning about the difference in the railroad tracks.The staff was very informative & friendly. I even picked up a couple souvenir's!

Be sure to get your Passport Stamp while here. This is not a large place so you can learn a lot in a short time. Just around the corner from David Wills House.

This museum is small but helps visitors visualize Lincoln's visit to Gettysburg, as it was here that his train stopped, and he walked up the street to the David Wills house.

Bonnie, who works for the National Park Service, recommended the Railroad Station as well as David Wills house. They were both worth the visit.
