Lots to learn and see about the state. Would be better if there were more interactive exhibits. The dino exhibit was my favorite of them all.

We like to visit State Capitols and State Museums. Today we visited Pennsylvania's and we're much impressed. We had only an hour-plus; at least a couple of hours would be better. Excellent exhibits! Friendly staff! Right next door to the PA State Capitol building.

I like stopping by the museum to see their new exhibits. It's a great building, with thoughtful displays where kids and adults alike can learn a lot about PA.
