Children of Gettysburg 1863


The interactive adventure for young historians.


Meet the Children of Gettysburg 1863.

More than a typical children's museum, the Children of Gettysburg 1863 tells the engaging stories of the children, teens and young adults who lived here during and after the battle.

Home to the Children of Gettysburg 1863, the historic Rupp House was the property of John and Caroline Rupp and their six children in 1863. It was truly a family home.


The Children of Gettysburg 1863 experience is currently free for young historians 12 and under when accompanied by a ticketed adult. During your visit, you'll introduce your child to Gettysburg and its significance while supporting a new generation of young learners on an interactive start to a lifetime of learning, inspiration and creativity.
