If you only have time to visit just one of the Gettysburg Civil War Home Museums, The Shriver House is a MUST see!

Rupp House
#5 of 22 Museums in Gettysburg
In the midst of a weekend dragging kids through the historic house-museums and relic collections of Gettysburg, this was such a breath of fresh air.
It's totally FREE, the docents are exceptional and the Museum is loaded with exhibits, displays, and even a scavenger hunt for the kids, they LOVE it.
Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum
#6 of 22 Museums in Gettysburg
There are so many small museums that seem worthwhile (the Shriver House Museum, the Jennie Wade house, the David Wills House) that it becomes a challenge to prioritize when you're in Gettysburg.
I was traveling with my brother who is a history buff and has studied civil war battles, works at a museum and even he commented this is one of the best museums he has stepped foot in lately.
Gettysburg Heritage Center
#7 of 22 Museums in Gettysburg
Aside from Lutheran Seminary Museum and the Visitors Center, this is one of the best all around museums in Gettysburg.

Gibson's Photographic Gallery
#8 of 22 Museums in Gettysburg
The resulting picture done in sepia looked like something hanging in a museum.
Gettysburg Diorama

It is one of the few museums open in the winter.
I was happy we went there after we toured the battlefields and the museum, as I recognized all sorts of things within the diorama after learning things from previous tours.
Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station

Excellent models....The museum docent was very knowledgeable.
We always have breakfast at the Lincoln Diner across the street, and this is the first time we stumbled into the railroad Museum.
Lincoln Train Museum
#11 of 22 Museums in Gettysburg
In the past we have always enjoyed the train museum and the ride on the the Lincoln train car which replicated Lincoln's journey from Washington, DC to Gettysburg for the Gettysburg Address.
Museum features train layouts, interesting items from rail history, interesting items from Presidential history, and a signature train "ride" that princess nostalgic fun.
Explore & More
#12 of 22 Museums in Gettysburg
Explore and More is a reasonably-priced children's museum that is a play house of sorts--you can move between rooms in the repurposed home and explore a construction/factory play area, art areas, dress up areas, a...
Our family loves Explore & More Museum, and it's quickly becoming a tradition with every trip to Gettysburg.
Battlefield Military Museum
#13 of 22 Museums in Gettysburg
Highly recommend going through the museum prior to touring the actual battlefield as it is a great way to set the stage.
From beginning to end this museum takes you back in time with such detail, you'll feel yourself caught up in the battle itself.

This tiny museum is jewel set next to a really nice boutique that sells real things ... just a stone throw from a huge interpretation centre full of made in china souvenirs.
Quaint small museum.
