The National Civil War Museum is dedicated to the education of the American Civil War 1861-1865. This unique, one of a kind facility portrays the humanistic side of war, from slavery to camp life to the turmoil of 19th century politics, with equal emphasis to both sides. A place where Union and Confederacy meet on common ground. Vending area on premise.

In addition to our exhibit galleries, we also offer exceptional banquet facilities atop the highest point in Harrisburg.
