Welcome to the Gettysburg Dime Museum!


The Gettysburg Dime Museum opened in May 2016 in a Civil-War-era home. Photo courtesy of Cheryl Morris.

Historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is well-known for the many Civil War attractions and museums, guided historic walking tours, ghost tours, battlefield tours, and National Park Service ranger programs on the three-day battle, fought on the streets of Gettysburg in the first few days of July, 1863.

But for a little different type of history – a step back in time to the era of circus sideshows and attractions of the odd and unusual –

Take a look at the Gettysburg Dime Museum . . . .
