This is definitely one of those “off the beaten path” sights of interest in Gettysburg. Here you can acquire a really good understanding of what family life was like during the Gettysburg battle. For $7.50 you’ll tour the entire home with a guide. You’ll find a lot of museums that focus on the nitty gritty of the war, but few will touch on the personal experiences of civilians back then. Additionally, the tour is about an hour and won’t drive small children mad with restlessness.
