Gettysburg Dime Museum

This museum has all the weird that anyone could ask for under one roof. The friendly staff is there to answer any questions you may have about the museum, and Mark the owner says that if he does not have the answer he will make one up. We believe it is a very nice representation of the 1800s dime museums. A few pieces are not from that time period, but it's still an amazing collection that must be seen.
