A nice stop in a neat town. Neat to be in the room where Lincoln slept before the address. A nice short visit is all you need.

The more I know about Gettysburg, the more I realize I don't know. This exhibit includes two videos that pull the rest of the exhibit together. It's really well done. And, for the next few weeks, it's free!

Well restored site, but it's claim to fame is "Lincoln slept her"e before he gave the Gettysburg address. I don't think I or any other tax payer really cares! The house is small and it is really a self guided tour of 4 rooms total....More

A self guided tour of the house that hosted the dignitaries that attended the dedication of Gettysburg’s National Cemetery. The furniture in the room that Lincoln slept in and finished writing his address. We took about 30 minutes to do the tour.

An easy self guided tour. A couple of movies explains the importance of the house. Right on the square. Walking in Pres Lincoln's own footsteps here!

This is where Lincoln spent the night before the Gettysburg Address. You can see the bedroom and learn the interesting fact about the home.

Self guided tour of this pre civil war home and law office of David Wills. This is the house where Lincoln stayed in while in town to deliver his famous address. They even have the original bed that Lincoln slept in.

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