This where Lincoln stayed when he came to Gettysburg to help dedicate the new soldier's cemetery. He finished his Gettysburg Address here the night before. It's now a National Park Service unit of the Gettysburg National Military Park. There is a nominal fee to enter.

If you enjoy Lincoln history this is a unique place to see. Lincoln spent the night here before given his Gettysburg address. The original bedroom furniture is on display. It is worth the $6.00 admission.

This is a museum which provides a lot of information in a one hour visit. Good background on the war and provides a lot of interesting information on the drafting and delivery of the G'burg address.

We was able to make it here before they closed. It is a self guided tour. Found it Interesting to see where Lincoln stayed before he gave his speech.

Great place to visit. You get to see where Lincoln stayed when he traveled to Gettysburg. Price was fair, a lot to see there.

By visiting the Wills House you will lean about what Abe did while he was getting ready for the Gettysburg Address. And about the local farmer where the horse Abe rode.

The David Wills House is where President Lincoln spent the nights before and after his famous Gettysburg Address on 19 NOV 1863. But the multi-storied house/Museum is and was so much more over the years. Located on the town square, it is a window on...More

Although this house is an easy and quick visit, it's nicely done. Seeing the exact room and maybe the exact spot where Lincoln revised his Gettysburg Address was an awesome experience. It's also located right on the circle in downtown Gettysburg where there are a...More

If you really want to read, see, and listen to everything the museum has to offer, I would say 11/2 to 2 hours.
