Whitaker Center Indoor Activities

Maybe it's raining. Perhaps it's too hot or cold outside. Either way, the Hershey Harrisburg Region has tons of indoor things to do like go-karts, museums, and tours!

Put time in reverse at AACA Museum, Inc., a Smithsonian-affiliated museum, with a pristine collection of antique cars and vintage buses. The National Civil War Museum presents an unbiased account of our nation’s most turbulent time using artifacts, photographs, and perspectives from both sides of the battlefields. Spend a little time exploring the art galleries in Harrisburg, featuring a rotating collection of art styles and themes. Catch an indie film or foreign flick at Midtown Cinema where the snack bar menu includes freshly roasted coffee, local ice cream, and craft beer.

Take aim and throw some axes (No, really. You can do that.) at Generation Axe at Joe K’s Brewhouse. When you can’t get on the green, work on your golf game indoors at Harrisburg Golf Simulator, which includes 80 virtual courses and additional sports and skill games. Let it ride at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course with thousands of video poker and slot machines, plus table games, restaurants, and sports betting.
