National Civil War Museum
One Lincoln Circle
Harrisburg, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, 17103
The National Civil War Museum opened to the public in 2001. The museum is located in a two-story brick building in Harrisburg's Reservoir Park.
The exhibits and self-guided tour begin on the second floor of the museum (first ten galleries) and continue on the first floor (last seven galleries and theater). A gift shop, temporary exhibit gallery, and museum support are on the first floor. A "Walk of Valor," consisting of red bricks bearing the names of Civil War veterans who have been honored by their surviving descendants, contributes to the museum's memorial-like grounds.
The exhibition covers the period from 1850 to 1876, with its major focus on the Civil War years of 1861 to 1865.
