The State Museum is located in the Capital City Harrisburg of the state of Pennsylvania. It covers all aspects of history relating to the state. My husband and I visited the Museum yesterday and spent 2 hours there viewing the exhibits. Here are some pictures of what we saw.

Several exhibits of Native Wildlife

PA Covered Wagon

Horse Drawn Carriage

Native American Exhibits


Antique Cars

We enjoyed our 2 hours at the Museum, especially because it was FREE. When you enter the building, they give you a map so that you can find your way around to all the exhibits. On the bottom floor you will find a gift shop and some artwork on display that you can purchase made by local artisans. I loved a lot of the art pieces but found many of them to be out of my price range. I did pick up a few trinkets at the gift shop to remind us of our day!
