My husband and children visited Gettysburg, PA for 3 days... We went to all the local museums and saw tons of exhibits and artifacts. The Gettysburg Museum of History was definately the best by far and it was FREE...We happened to drive by and see the sign so we stopped..It was literally captivating... that museum kept the attention of all three of my kids ages 5 to 12 not to mention my husband and I. It had everything from the Civil War to JFK's suit to a lock of George and Martha Washington's hair!! The owner was extremely nice and my husband talked with him for quite a while... If you go to any museum in Gettysburg, you HAVE to go here...My husband and I plan to go back with no children and that is the first stop on my list...Can't wait to go back:) Thanks Erik for opening up such an amazing place...Another thing, this museum is run completely off of donations, so if you like it as much as we did, please please help keep it open!!!
