As my husband said, it's basically a "Lincoln slept here" kind of place, but there are some neat displays and 2 movies to watch. It's very modern and well-kept. The restrooms are very nice. There was a charge to enter.
A great stop to learn about David Willis and Abraham Lincoln and their significant rolls with regards to the dedication on November 19,1863 of the Soldiers National Cemetery.
This is the house where Lincoln stayed the night before he gave the Gettysburg Address when the Soldier's National Cemetery was dedicated on November 19, 1863. He put the finishing touches on his speech in the bedroom he stayed it. Definitely a great way to tie in Lincoln's stay in Gettysburg with the battle itself.

There is nothing better in history than when things are made alive for you. This is exactly what this little museum does, great history behind it and the way everything was so preserved and life like. It's like a time capsule.
We stopped in by accident. We were walking the square and decided to visit the home. Lovingly restored by the park service, this house is filled with battle history, and of course, the Gettysburg address. Worth your time!
Most people usually get a pass to this site when they buy other tickets. It explains how the government had to get into the cemetery business. While visiting, make sure you dine at the Blue and Grey.
