Although we have been to Gettysburg many times, the David Wills House is a relatively new experience for visitors. The home is beautiful, inside and out. Not only is the room accessible that President Lincoln stayed in but it is appointed with the actual bed (including the bed coverings) that President Lincoln slept in the night before the Gettysburg Address.... 更多
Although it sounds like a great spot to hit while in Gettysburg, this tourist attraction is only great for one thing...maybe two. If you need to get out of the heat, there is a/c and it was kind of cool to see where Lincoln stayed the night before his address. Most of the house filled with the knowledge that you... 更多
I have been to Gettysburg many times, but this is a relatively new museum and I had never been here. I am so glad that we went. The admission was the pretty standard price ($7). It is new and a little high tech, but don't let it put you off. The restoration is beautifully designed and it is self guided... 更多
This is a great preservation! Other reviewers said they expected more, but I don't know what more they could want. There is tons of written information, 2 great videos and some artifacts. The original bed, linens, and room Lincoln used are on display. You could easily stay 2 hours and not realize it!

If you really want to learn about the Gettysburg Address this is the place to go. Imagine Lincoln sitting in a room writing the Gettysburg Address that only took 2 minutes to recite.
I don't think there were any places in the Gettysburg area that we were disappointed in. This house had so much period items and is rich in history. They do a wonderful job displaying artifacts and giving descriptions of those artifacts and things that were going on at the time. Well worth the money and time to visit.
