Since this was a free site, it is worth a visit. I was expecting more historical items based on the looks of the outside of the building. There is a video upstairs that is worth watching. The best part of the building was the bedroom...More

Nice museum of another part of the story. Does not take too much time, as it is an easy read and listen on 2 floors.

Beautiful historic house. It gives me chills to think that Abraham Lincoln (one of our countries greatest Presidents) visited, ate, slept and finished his Gettysburg Address in this House. Don’t miss this stop when in Gettysburg.

We enjoyed that you can go through each room at your leisure and watch the video that covers the room your in and the history behind President Lincoln's visit! Also a quaint area of town for shops and food.

The title about sums the visit up - at least for me. The exhibit was FREE. You only see a small gift shop in the front (street facing room), another 1st floor room and two rooms upstairs. There is an elevator. One upper room has...More

If you really want to read, see, and listen to everything the museum has to offer, I would say 11/2 to 2 hours.
