Museums, Historic Sites & Theater


Harrisburg State Capitol Building

Pennsylvania State Capitol Complex

The Capital Region of Pennsylvania yields museums, theaters, and historic sites galore – ranging from the early days of the nation to modern performing arts centers.

Harrisburg is a historic district in and of itself, and features more than enough museums and historic homes to prove it. Your first stop in Capital City is the Pennsylvania State Capitol Complex, featuring the Pennsylvania State Archives, the Governor's Residence, and the State Museum of Pennsylvania. Also known as the William Penn Memorial Museum, the State Museum of Pennsylvania includes a planetarium and exhibits Keystone State art and history.

More Harrisburg museums include the National Civil War Museum and Pennsylvania National Fire Museum, while historic homes in the area are the Fort Hunter Mansion and the Park and John Harris – Simon Cameron Mansion. Browse through the historic Market Square, and grab a seat at the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts or The Forum – home to the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra.

More historic spots and cultural sites are found throughout the Capital Region. Visit Frankeberger Tavern, the oldest structure in Mechanicsburg, or head to Middletown for historic homes like the Henry Smith Farm, Swatara Ferry House, and the Simon Cameron House & Bank.

Even in the famed chocolate city of Hershey, historic sites like the Milton S. Hershey Mansion and the Hershey Story Museum are found near HERSHEY’S Chocolate World. And for theater fans, check out York venues like Capitol Theatre, Strand Studio, and the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center.
