Arts, Heritage & Museums

Stand on the exact spot where U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt called the PA State Capitol Building the “handsomest building” he’d ever seen. Walk the hallways of the mansions that housed some of Harrisburg’s most influential figures. Pull back the curtain on the majestic Hershey Theatre, a building raised during America’s Great Depression as part of Milton Hershey’s “Great Building Campaign.” Put yourself in a soldier’s boots at the National Civil War Museum and discover untold tales about this turbulent time in American history.

Our culture of arts and our preservation of history help to form the cornerstones of the Hershey Harrisburg Region. We invite you to explore, inquire, and applaud!
