Lots of trains to look at and there is a huge interactive train diorama that would be great for kids. You could easily spend 2+ hours here looking at everything.

This is the newest addition to the Gettysburg chain of museums and battlefield sites to see. Remade train station situated on the site where Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg. It won't take a long time to see, but it is worth checking out when in town.

This is a remake of the original train station that Abraham Lincoln arrived at to give his Gettysburg address. The foundation of the original train station can be seen. There are a number of panels to explain its history. We were there less than an hour.

To walk in and see the place where President Lincoln arrived and departed Gettysburg, Very cool! Only a hand full of exhibits but any more and I think it would take away from the actual building. In the rear corner of the building you can actually view the original platform.

We stopped by in the afternoon but were disappointed that they were getting ready for a social gathering that night, so much of the regular displays were taken down to make room for tables, etc. It was just one of those "we were there at the wrong time" deals.

IF you have a few extra min, it's well worth your time- it is a wealth of history and just a block or two from the main square

The Gettysburg Railroad Station is now a museum with some very interesting pictures taken around the time of the battle and soon after.
