This is only a self guided tour. It mostly consists of a few videos and displays. The Lincoln bedroom was neat but very dark and you could not use flash photography. It would have been nice if they sold postcards of the bedroom taken by a professional because your photos will not come out worth printing. The hours are 10-5 daily May through August. It was not worth the admission fee.

This tour was disappointing for such a wonderful man as David Wills. His house has been turned into more of a visitor center than a museum or house to tour.

For anyone who is a Lincoln fan, this place is a must see. Great information on the events leading to the Gettysburg Address.

Our friends have a "Friends of Gettysburg" membership so we were able to get in for free. I'm certainly glad because I wouldn't have wanted to pay for this. Only 2 rooms were furnished. The others simply had videos to watch & some information available, most of which we had already learned at the Gettysburg Museum. The room where Lincoln slept was interesting to look at but not enough to make up for the rest of the house. Not worth the price of admission.

Make sure you stop here BEFORE visiting the National Soldiers Cemetery. It gives excellent background of who designed it, the undertaking of "making it happen" and the dedication ceremony, including Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Wills was the "go-to" guy for making the cemetery happen and he was the one who invited Lincoln to speak. Lincoln stayed here the night before giving the Gettysburg Address.
