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

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.

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.
