Owner description: The only museum in the United States to present a balanced, unbiased look at the Civil War.
Reviewed 4 June 2007

I was hesitant to visit this museum, as I have never been intrigued by the Civil War. However, from the first exhibit, focusing on slavery, I was hooked. This museum guides you through the stages of the Civil War, explaining both sides without judgment. It is full of photographs, clothing, weapons, even music from this time. If you are going to be in Harrisburg and have the time, visit this museum!
