Budget about 15 or 20 minutes to see all you need to see here. The building and it's historic significance make it worth a quick stop.

This is the station where Lincoln arrived when he came to make the Gettysburg Address. There are some exhibits and people there were friendly and informative. It is close to the Will's House so if you go there, you should stop in to see the train station.

This little museum was worth a visit. It wasn't filled to the gills with artifacts but what it did have was very interesting. The people there are quite knowledgeable about the Railroad Station and eagerly answered questions and were very informative about the area.

This is the station where Lincoln arrived to give the Gettysburg Address. They have several small displays. It does not take much time to visit here. It is nicely displayed.

This is free to the public and only takes a few minutes. Well worth those few minutes to get a glimpse of the railroad station where Lincoln came into town in 1863. The attendant gave us a good synopsis of the history of the building and the rail line that came into town during that time.

This is the train station where Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg in November of 1863. There really isn't much to see but it is worth it to say you were there.
