“As far as Visitors Center's go this one is perfectly fine.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

The staff is very helpful, but there is not much to see there on display. The bathrooms are in another building next door at the relatively new transit center where you can ride one of the tourist buses. They have pamphlets and maps of downtown Gettysburg. Only drawback is finding the parking for this place. It's really easy to miss and I ended up driving around the block once before I figured it out. The entrance to the parking is before you get to the visitors center (if driving north) so by the time you have figured out where the visitor's center is, you have already passed the parking. I recommend parking in the parking deck nearby (probably the only parking deck in town). It was 75 cents an hour for parking and just take the free tourist bus to anywhere in town that you want to go. The tourist bus system is nice, I rode the complete red line just to see everything first.

“Place for information”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

This is the place to stop if you need information on Gettysburg. It will only take you a few minutes to look at what they have on display. The staff is friendly.

“a good place to start in the area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The train station is free and is also the Gettysburg information center. A great place to start if you’re visiting the Gettysburg area for lodging, restaurants and attraction information. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful.

“The staff gets 5 stars from me.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Honestly, it's not very exciting. The extremely friendly & helpful staff that day made it worth the stop. Also, looking back we captured some really nice pictures. This is not for everyone but I'm sure some history buffs or train lovers would enjoy.
