The tour was really educational and it was neat that there were some original items in the house. There are better places to see in Gettysburg but it's still cool and I'm happy we went.

I would highly recommend everyone go see the Jennie Wade house while you’re in Gettysburg. The house is very small so if you don’t like being in small places I would recommend going close to closing time.

This tour was wonderful, our guide was super. She had great story's of the history of the house and the family who lived there was probley the best historical/museum tour we took. Thanks for the good time and the history leason.

Worn out tourist trap with nothing to recommend it. Tacky and expensive gift shop is attached. Not worth the time, let alone the $$.

Bought some pickles from the "pickle guy" in the gift shop. Very friendly staff and great tour of the Jennie Wade house! It is worth your time to make this one of your itineraries while in Gettysburg.

Service animals are permitted. However, the house is very small and has stairs. A stroller would not be feasible (very narrow).
