The State Museum of Pennsylvania

One of the Most Visited Pennsylvania History Museums!

The State Museum of Pennsylvania is adjacent to PA's State Capitol Building in Harrisburg, and offers a variety of exhibits and exquisite collections that showcase the state's thoroughly fascinating heritage.  Explore the history of Native Americans in PA, the colonial and revolutionary origins, and a Civil War battleground that'll take you through the vast industrial age.  For all you art enthusiasts, The Fine Art of Giving is a splendid exhibition of 85 paintings, sculptures, photographs, prints, and crafts that were selected from more than 400 gifts of art received between the years of 1998 and 2008.  Trailblazers is another great exhibit, which educates its visitors on notable African-Americans throughout PA history.  The State Museum of PA also offers several educational programs that allow students of all ages to learn about the state's textured history.  With 135,000 schoolchildren and adults who visit annually, the museum has more visitors than any other historic museum in PA between Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania!

 If you're looking for the perfect place to celebrate your Planetarium party, then look no further than the State Museum of Pennsylvania. Why a planetarium party? Simple: there's nothing better than mixing fun with learning. This is not the educational video you play for your kids in the living room, this is an experience in surround sound, in living color, designed by the scientists and educators who know how to make your children as excited about the movements of the heavenly bodies as they are. If you've wondered about the stars that burn so many light years away, why Saturn has rings, or where the end of the universe lies, then this is the party for you!
