Arts and History

The PA State Capitol dome is one of the most iconic sights in Harrisburg, but the story behind it and the building it covers is just as incredible. Hersheypark® is one of the most iconic theme parks in America, but the story of the man who founded it and the entire town is waiting for you to discover. In every museum, mansion, theatre and art studio throughout Hershey and Harrisburg, there are stories to be told and important historical lessons to be learned for inquisitive minds of all ages.

Local, regional, and national artwork is showcased in intimate, accessible galleries in places like Landis House (Perry County Council of the Arts) and the Susquehanna Art Museum in Midtown Harrisburg. Check their sites for special events dates.

Pennsylvania - the Keystone State - has its fingerprints on countless historical events and industrial evolutions. Walk through the state's history at the State Museum of Pennsylvania, located right across the street from the beautiful Capitol Building.

Of course we're so much more than the past - we're celebrating culture and the arts every day with live musical and theatre performances. From acoustic sets to broadway shows, the arts and culture scene in the Hershey Harrisburg Region is fresh, new and engaging.
