Beautiful location, grounds and facility. Museum is logically organized and tells the story of the Civil War in all of its aspects. Artifacts are an amazing collection. Worth spending a couple of hours here.

Excellent representation on the Civil War. Videos as you follow the war from display to display. Plenty of places to sit and rest throughout the tour. Recommended

We were brought to tears walking through the displays. We were very touched by their presentations. If in to our history, this is a not-to-be-missed location.
We also attended a wedding and reception held here. Beautiful staircase for this type of event. Outside space also used and reception handled in a different location within the building. Very organized. Everyone enjoyed themselves.

front the first time I experienced this venue I was awed by the location, on a hilltop overlooking the area, to the exhibitions, to the history without promoting one side or the other. I have been thru this now four times and have not seen it all. Brought my reunion group here and they all had positive comments. A MUST SEE

We have many of the Civil War sites, Shiloh, Vicksburg, Gettysburg etc but this museum really captured it all in such an interesting way. We stayed in Harrisburg as we had read the reviews on this site and were pleased we did.
