In the midst of a weekend dragging kids through the historic house-museums and relic collections of Gettysburg, this was such a breath of fresh air. When we walked in (for Free), we were greeted by a woman in period costume who said, "Welcome. Come in...More

Great place to visit. Staff was very informative. Gave a great view of what the citizens went through during the war. Free and worth a donation.

This is an interactive museum which is free, but I believe it is only open on weekends. We had a lovely chat with one of the staff, and we enjoyed our visit. It was right across the road from our B&B.

The Rupp House is a place for all ages. Children can have hands on experiences and win prizes doing the scavenger hunts. Adults will see that the battle of Gettysburg was much more than 3 days in July. The volunteers are exceptional.
