This was a diversion while I was in Harrisburg, PA. The museum was very entertaining and informative. My son and I enjoyed it very much. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to do something fun with their family.

Small museum, but worth a visit. The coverage of people who were enslaved is the most meaningful part of the exhibit. It does a good job of showing the horrors of enslavement.

Avery good museum but I downrated it a star because I think they try to do too much. It's too hard to let it all sink in. I think that museum's such as at Gettysburg that concentrate on one battle or aspect of the war are more digestible.

Very nice museum. The videos with their story-based presentation helped keep the whole family engaged for nearly two hours.

About The National Civil War Museum

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
