Note: If you're looking to tour the Eisenhower National Historical Site, you'll go to the visitor's center to purchase shuttle bus tickets to the farm. Transportation for this attraction is provided by Gettysburg Tours Inc. The Eisenhower National Historical Site is open daily, except on New Year's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Driving Directions: The museum & visitor center is located at 1195 Baltimore Pink, Gettysburg, PA. 17325, phone (717) 338-9114 for reservations and information.
Next up, our visit to the museum. If you're a civil war military buff or just enjoy visiting museums, you'll love this one!
After paying your admission, you'll head to the museum section in the building. If you're just visiting the museum and no other attractions, it's completely housed on one floor, so you'll have no steps to climb, elevators to use, etc. We took the self-guided tour, which allowed us to walk around & view the exhibits at our own leisurely pace.
While walking around and viewing all of the exhibits, you really get a feel for what the battle was like during those 3 bloody days. You learn how the Confederate and Union Armies conducted themselves, who led the fights, where and when the battles occurred, who won & who lost and all kinds of different civil war historical facts.
