State Museum of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, PA

20228831_10214447969139793_3852338394662733307_nFor our last outing while in the Hershey area, we traveled to Harrisburg to check out the State Museum of PA. In preparing for our visit, I checked out the parking options in the area, and it looked like there was limited on street parking, with the majority of public parking being a number of parking garages in the vicinity. That is my biggest dislike of only having a dually for our mode of transportation, as it can be quite challenging to find a parking spot – especially in a city. So we decided to wait and go into the city on Saturday morning, which turned out to be a great idea. We went first thing in the morning and had our pick of parking spots, finding one right out in front of the museum.

We really enjoyed our visit. There was a whole section where we could see what a early Pennsylvania village would look like.

Here Schaun is checking out early toys.

I’m glad our dragonflies aren’t this big anymore!

We had an enjoyable time exploring items from Pennsylvania’s past. It was a fun way to finish up our two week visit in the area.

We are on our way back to Ohio now – back in Woodland PA for a couple nights. Tomorrow we arrive back at Countryside Campground, and our trip with Schaun will be over – until next year.
