Another PA attraction you will want to add to your journey is the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA. You can easily book a car rental from Orthodox Auto Company in Philadelphia and take a day trip to Harrisburg in under two hours.

The National Civil War Museum prides itself on its equal presentation of the facts and events surrounding the war that divided a nation, without bias toward either the Union or Confederate sides. Some of the exhibits and attractions you can see at the museum include:

  • Over 25,000 Civil War artifacts.
  • Personal effects of known Civil War leaders, such as Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee.
  • Exhibits focusing on different eras of the war.
  • A museum café for refreshments during your visit.
  • The museum gift shop so you can take home souvenirs.

This trip is great for families, school groups, or local organizations and clubs.
