Gettysburg Museum of History reviews
From George and Martha Washington's hair to one of a kind artifacts, this place is positively AMAZING. If you're a collector you will definitely want to stop by and see what they have for sale. more »
The owner was not friendly and just sat there. It has a lot of artifacts for history buffs. There was a lot and it was cluttered with neat things. There were photos of Presidents visiting Gettysburg..... more »
This is a quaint and quality private museum where you can see some great artifacts and even buy some to take home with you. The admission is free, but please leave a donation in the bucket for the nice people that run this!! Great little place!!!😁
Absolutely amazing collection! The WWII collection alone is worth the trip from anywhere. Eric graciously took some time to speak with me and he was so willing to share. I highly recommend making this a must see.
