The railroad station museum is a must stop for any history buff. It doesn't matter if it's Rail road history, Civil War history or a love of historic buildings this station is well worth stopping at. You're also at the center of town where the confederate flag was raised for a short period of time during the battle of Gettysburg,... More

Stopped here so our 14 year old granddaughter could see where President Lincoln arrived. It's free and has a nice large model of the station as you enter. You can view the exhibits in 30 minutes or so and then pick up a little coupon book for Gettysburg!

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.
