Although it is primarily a Bucktail's museum, Ronn's collection spans many Pennsylvania Regiments. You have the opportunity to look those brave men in the eye, its a wonderful experience with many artifacts belonging to several of the soldiers featured. Ronn stays open late on the weekends while many other places are closed, take time to visit, ask questions and I promise you will want to come back for more and also recommend to your friends. The cases in the front of museum contain many images for sale, as well as other items for sale like some good books, bullets and other items. All in all a worthwhile visit for all the family. Currently admission is free with request for donations, this is a private museum, please support well.

Great attraction in Gettysburg. Really gives you an idea of what soldiers in the era looked like. Ronn is a great guy and terrific host. As a fan of the Bucktails, I was really impressed with the large selection of photographs showing the boys with the tails! Very nice place and great owner!

This small Baltimore St. museum is what it claims to be, hundreds and hundreds of images and photos of various civil war figures from all walks of life. Certainly worth a stop, the staff is friendly and does a great job with any questions.

Not really sure when we went in here what we'd find. The guys went in while the ladies were shopping and then we followed. We were pleasantly surprised. It is a nicely curated private collection of photos of soldiers, mostly from Pennsylvania, who served in the war. There are some artifacts as well. It humanizes what sometimes seems to be just statistics. It's free but give him a donation as thanks for sharing his collection.
