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.

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?

Small museum that is mostly A visitors center. Lots of brochures and nice staff but not much as A museum. It is neat to see where Lincoln came into town in 1863 but they could have done so much more to make this place even better

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.
