Gettysburg Dime Museum

This recreation of a 19th century dime museum is full of oddities. 

The Gettysburg Dime Museum is a recreation of a 19th century dime museum.  Loaded with oddities and curiosities, the museum exhibits a mixture of authentic and not-so-authentic artifacts leaving it to the visitor to distinguish between the two. Exhibits include: freaks of nature, true crime, voodoo mysteries, legendary creatures, historical enigmas, wonders of the world, and medical quackery.

Update June 2018: Sadly, 2018 is the third and final season for this museum. November 17, 2018 will be the last day, so go while you can.
