This is a FREE interactive house turned museum which our grandchildren, ages 11, 9, 6, and 5, all enjoyed. There is a scavenger hunt for facts pertaining to the Battle of Gettysburg, which can be found by looking on the walls or in drawers marked "pull to open" or in glass enclosed cabinets. At the completion of the scavenger hunt,... More

We stopped in here mainly because it was a free attraction and we found that it was as well done as some tours that we paid for. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff who were eager and happy to answer all of our questions! We learned a great deal about the early town of Gettysburg and civilian life during the battle!...

This museum is worth stopping at. It is free (donations accepted), air conditioned, and you can touch things. Be sure to try to lift the pack that soldiers had to carry around. Ask any of the workers in period dress your questions about civilians when this battle took over their town and outlying areas. The gentleman that was volunteering the... More

Where to start. This place has lots of facts and is hands on. The staff is very informative and helpful. And to top it off it's FREE! Mike was awesome!

This is a free event and was definitely worth our time! My boyfriend and I are originally from MN, but we're staying in Pittsburgh for the summer. Only being 3.5 hours away from Gettysburg, we decided to make a day trip. I looked and looked for everything and anything we could see to make our trip worth while. Among many... More

This house and its orator give the complete picture of what it was like to be a civilian caught between the Yanks and the Feds during the battle. So many bullet holes, so many stories! This house even has a small scale model that teaches you how to build a "z" shaped fence, the ones that the soldiers would have... More

The Rupp House is worth a stop when you pass by, and you are very likely to pass by since it is located close many other shops and attractions. However, it's only open on weekends. This is very informative with interactive exhibits and is operated by volunteers. There is no charge, but there is an opportunity for guests to support... More

The Rupp House was a real treat today. It's free and is run by the Gettysburg Foundation. In addition to being full of facts and displays, there are hands-on exhibits to keep kids interested. They also had a living history exhibit outside with more information, focusing on the soldiers who fought at Little Round Top.

Love being able to visit as hours of it being open are limited. Amazing rooms with period items. Expected to see a little more of the house, but was well worth the visit. Friendly volunteers of the Friends of Gettysburg make this happen. Daughter learned a lot including how to build a worm fence.

This museum was great for young & old alike... Please touch everything & please ask questions. This museum showed bullet holes in tables, what the solders carried & had you lift to see how heavy it was, some medical items, even an old kitchen cabinet where there was some historical fact in every drawer or behind every door.
