A few items in the museum. It is also a great place to get directions and ask for info. The staff was very helpful and helped me map out my stops.

The historic train station where Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg, just North of the square, is at present having ownership transferred from the Gettysburg Foundation to the National Park Service. It is expected to become an official part of the National Battlefield Park in the Spring. Currently serving as a small museum about the town at the time of the battle... More

I'm absolutely THRILLED that they are repainting the station after so many years of the horrid mustard color. A very nice little museum with knowledgeable employees.

Great place if you love train history. It's in one of the historic buildings on the corner. It is free and you can make a small donation to keep it going. Well worth it!

The staff was very helpful and pleasant. We found it interesting but for such a rich history there just isn't much to see there.

We only spent 30 mins or so here but it was interesting to learn a little more about the place where Lincoln arrived and departed from. Its mostly reading. People working there were very friendly and helpful.

Although you won't arrive on a train as Lincoln did, you can be part of history and visit the train station he arrived at. The train station is a combination of a small museum and visitor center, more a visitor center than museum. However, the is some interesting information and artifacts posted around the building. The staff/volunteers there are very... More

This is a Visitor's Center and offers lots of information and free brochures. I am not sure about some of the reviews that say there were lots of trains & things for the kids to do? Maybe that's the Lincoln Train Museum? There is no admission charge, there are some old artifacts that have been found beneath the floor boards... More
