    Excellent museum! (A Smithsonian Affiliated Museum) The museum building and grounds/views are spectacular. Great historical pieces and very informative. The layout was well thought out. This museum definitely provides an unbiased view between the north & south battle. When we visited we couldn’t believe that we spent about 4 hours going through it all. A true treasure in Harrisburg, PA. Highly recommend if you are passing through the area. There is an admission charge but I got a great deal through Groupon for admission for two. (always great to save a few bucks). The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The gift shop was nice and had some interesting pieces/treasures. If you are in Harrisburg add this and the Capitol Building to your to do list.

    I loved the location, and this was a quality learning experience that I am actually going to be going to again soon. (Tomorrow morning!) I also have the same problem with it as the others though. The noise from the exhibits was loud to the point of distraction so that it was hard to read the exhibit signs. (I can see this being a good thing if you go on a busy day and the drone of the crowd helps make everything turn into background noise, but when you’re there alone it’s just very attention-grabbing.) Also some of the exhibits’ numbering systems were very confusing in their set up. Other than those two things? It’s wonderful! My favorite part was where you could listen to excerpts from the songs of that time.

    Museum location is beautiful. Exhibits are very nice & well written. Only complaint is the audio loops in each room being a bit loud

    This is a great museum but it is located in a strange, hard to reach neighborhood. But that just holds down the crowds and makes it all the more enjoyable.

    The only downside is the admission price but, in today’s economy I can understand that funding is not easy to come by.
