The State Museum of Pennsylvania

Details

The State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg, the official museum of the Commonwealth, is a great place for exploration, fun, and discovery. On a trip to the museum, encounter a giant chick, meet a family of Coelophysis dinosaurs, or bump into a huge mastodon. Hike among the bear, porcupine, elk, deer, and other creatures of Mammal Hall. Uncover salamanders and snakes; spot eagles and woodpeckers. Gaze upon the stars in the museum’s Planetarium sky. Follow Pennsylvania’s Native Americans throughout time. March into the Civil War era and see remnants of its greatest battle. Cruise past our antique cars or buzz around our planes.
