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!

Knowledgeable people who were patient with the children, ages 5-7. Showed model of the train station & train when Lincoln arrived in Sept of 1863 to give the Gettysburg Address, which he wrote the David Wills house in Gettysburg.

The very train station Lincoln used when he gave the Gettysburg address, the station tells about Abe's visit. Also a way to see how train stations were in 1863 with displays of the 1863 era. Rather Lincoln or trains are your hobby, this is a must see.

I love seeing anything that has to do with Abe Lincoln so this was a true gem to find!! I wish I could remember the gal's name who was working on Tuesday when I went in to look around. She was so nice! We talked for at least 30min about the Depot, the Battlefield and other places around the area.... More

A good place to visit for some interesting facts on Lincoln's visit and the Train Station as it was then. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful.

I adore this spot. It is listed as a must see on the autotour and they are right. It is free admission. The station has a few important roles in the Battle. Lincoln got off the train here to deliver the Address. The station also was used as a hospital and transport for the dead and wounded confederates. Its small... More

Free little tour explaining not only of the Lincoln connection, but also the train system of the day... Ie. Men and women had separate areas of the train station and so on. Women was very enthusiastic about what she was teaching/explaining and very very friendly! You must see the train station replica, it is absolutely breathtaking.... And for those with... More

My grandson and I both loved this museum and found it to be really interesting. Lots of good information, and the simulated train ride was great. Lots of trains and train related items as well as lots of Americana.
