This was the neatest little old building. Although I did expect to see more. It's free so you can't expect much. But it is still worth a stop while in Gettysburg.

Visited during the Gettysburg address weekend. I assume it was finally acquired by the foundation. Restored nicely. Staff informative and NP guide in the evening prior to Remembrance Day gave nice "talk". Worth a few minutes walk from the center circle.

I love history & the guide was very informative. President Lincoln arrived here when he came to give his famous "Gettysburg address".

We travel to Gettysburg every October. We always have breakfast at the Lincoln Diner across the street, and this is the first time we stumbled into the railroad Museum. I am glad we did. Restoration was great, and history of the building and railroad was very interesting. From Lincoln's trip from Washington to Gettysburg, to the information about the station... More

It was surprising to see the simplicity in the restoration of the Gettysburg Station. On occasion, modern trains pass by. The staff is helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the station and the town. It was great to see where Lincoln arrived at Gettysburg, got off the train and then walked to the Wills House on the square.

You just can't tour Gettysburg without stopping in this lovely train station. Memories just seem to hang in the air. The lady at the desk is full of information she willingly shares, the old wooden benches just call to you to sit down and imagine who sat there before you. History - it is full of history. Walking distance of... More

Walk around Gettysburg Center and enjoy the smells, sounds, and sights of yesteryear. The old hotels and structures are fantastic, and don't forget to visit the Station. Bathrooms are available right across the street at the bus terminal, so relax and enjoy!
