We’ve created two suggested routes; The 3rd Street Walk to the Capitol and the Monuments & Murals Loop.
Each suggested route is approximately one mile in length on a mostly flat, paved, and easy to navigate path. At almost every point along the routes, the majestic PA Capitol Dome is visible as a navigation waypoint.
You can follow the routes or make your own path.
Most highlighted stops are free, outdoor public art installments.
Two stops (The Susquehanna Art Museum and the State Museum of Pennsylvania), require paid admission for full museum access. Plan a few extra hours to work these into your tour or visit us another time to enjoy at your own pace.
We’ve chosen artwork that’s viewable from well-traveled, paved sidewalks. Use common pedestrian safety practices to ensure a safe walk for yourself and for others enjoying the city.
This tour DOES NOT include every mural or piece of art in Harrisburg. Our goal is to highlight areas with a high density of diverse work that’s walkable in just a few hours.
Some locations include a “You Might Also Like” mention. These are murals or attractions that are a few blocks off the suggested route. Close enough to mention, but juuuust outside the scope of our mile-long routes. The choice is yours for adding them into your tour!
The current route suggestions will be in place until April 17, 2023. At that time, check-ins will reset.
Use the mobile pass to check in at each location.
Just tap the “Check In” button on your app when you’re close to the mural. No codes needed!
For a successful check-in, your phone's Location Services in the Privacy Settings should be "on," and your browser's setting should allow location access "While using the app." It's a geolocation check-in, so check-in before heading to the next stop on your tour!
Accumulate 14 check-ins to earn a set of 5x7 postcards featuring murals and destinations from the trail.
