Get a sense of Americana from the broad, diverse collection at Gettysburg Museum of History, housing artifacts from the Civil War and World Wars I and II, as well as items associated with U.S. presidents and pop icons. Made famous by the popular television show "American Pickers," the museum is owned and curated by passionate collector Erik L. Dorr. See Civil War memorabilia, such as a frock coat and carbine rifle, as well as some rather bizarre relics, including a lock of Marilyn Monroe's hair and a portion of a car seat stained with JFK's blood.

  • I didn't expect anything in particular, but as I crossed the entrance door I was amazed by the amount of items on display. You can spend a good time inside and yet not be able to see everything they have! I was surprised with the weapons, the uniforms, the personal items of soldiers and of historical figures. I totally recommend the visit, that has free admittance, though totally deserves our donation to keep on going.
  • I liked being able to enjoy the various pieces without someone trying to sell me something. For a no fee museum it's filled with excellent pieces and a good variety.
