People tend to walk slowly through The National Civil War Museum?both out of respect for the fallen soldiers and sheer awe at how much there is to see. The institution strives to cover the events before, during, and after the war without bias to either the Union or Confederate cause. Size: with 21,000 historic documents and 4,400 artifacts rotating in and out of exhibits on two floors, the museum recommends reserving 2 to 4 hours for a visit Eye Catcher: Moment of Mercy?a statue outside the museum that depicts Richard Kirkland, a confederate sergeant who gave water to wounded Union troops Permanent Mainstay: Weapons & Equipment, a collection of rifles and uniforms from both sides of the Mason Dixon Temporary Exhibit: 1864?the first of four special exhibits to cover specific years of the war and part of the museum's lead up to the Civil War's 150th anniversary Don't Miss: a giant, interactive video wall, where President Abraham Lincoln answers questions about anything except his hat Leave Your Mark: descendants of Civil War veterans can purchase memorial bricks that add their relatives' names to the museum's Walk of Valor

The 65' x 80' screen towers over the audience, immersing them in overwhelming three-dimensional visuals like a diorama built in Paul Bunyan's shoebox. Swing from the trees with Born to be Wild 3D, a heartwarming documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman that introduces audiences to the lives of orphaned orangutans and elephants and their human care-givers. Hubble 3D follows the crewmembers of the space shuttle Atlantis on their mission to repair the Hubble Telescope, giving viewers a close-up look at such breathtaking galactic events as the birth of stars and the Quinceañera of planets.

Featured on Central PA magazine’s 2010 Hot List for Best Leisure Options, The State Museum lays out a telescopic view of the Commonwealth's history throughout its four-story building. Visitors are welcomed by the colossal figure of William Penn, flash-frozen in bronze and captured in his life-like 18-foot majesty. The statue stands flanked by cunning facsimiles of a Pennsylvania past and backed by the museum's featured exhibit, currently Wood on Glass, a photographic history and lecture series on the lumber industry. The second floor recreates a Native American village and unrolls the carpet of history from the Civil War through the Industrial Revolution and beyond. The final level delves thousands of years into the past when the eons-old Marshalls Creek Mastodon lumbered across the Pennsylvanian plains and starred in two MTV reality shows—see the 12,000-year-old, 20-foot skeleton when its exhibit opens on Sunday, February 27.

Strolling across the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum is like walking a giant timeline from the late 1800s to the 1970s.

Size: more than 150 donated vehicles, with 85?100 on display at any given time Oldest Gem: the 1895 Chicago Motor Benton Harbor, which could reach a heart-pumping 23 miles per hour Most Modern Vehicle: 1977 Chrysler Cordoba with fine Corinthian leather seats Hopefully Not in the Rearview Mirror: 1945 Harley Davidson Police Special, frequently used by the California Highway Patrol Special Programs: movie screenings, exotic car shows, automotive technology competitions, and more Pro Tip: Allow at least 90 minutes to explore the entire museum Hidden Gem: a charging station where electric car owners can "refuel" while exploring the museum

Milton S. Hershey, founder of the Hershey chocolate dynasty, gave the world more than just his signature bars of sweet, rich chocolate. He also built the town of Hershey, Pennsylvania, and laid the foundations for its future, providing public education for residents and preserving collections of Native American and Pennsylvania German artifacts. Visitors to The Hershey Story, The Museum on Chocolate Avenue learn about Hershey's entire legacy, perusing exhibits such as Failures to Fortunes, which details his impoverished childhood and later success, and Sweet Innovations, which showcases his creative chocolate-making practices, such as his unique approach to milk chocolate. Guests can make truffles and other confections to feed their pet chocolate bunnies during the hands-on Chocolate Lab, or they can stop by Café Zooka to taste flights of drinking chocolates sourced from Africa, Indonesia, and other locations around the world.

Though it opened in 1977 with a small collection of timepieces, the National Watch & Clock Museum now houses more than 12,000 items, making it the largest collection of its kind in North America. Clocks, watches, and their associated tools reside in glass cases, lorded over by the monumental Engle Clock, an 11-foot-tall, 1,049-pound marvel of clock design whose 13th toll will signify when the giant lasagna being cooked in the earth's core is done. Hands-on exhibits scattered throughout the museum give kids the chance to wonder at turning gears and learn about intriguing time concepts. Current special exhibits include Enlisting Time, a collection of personal timepieces carried by soldiers over the last 250 years, featuring watches owned by George Washington and Ian Fleming.
