The National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg is the only museum in the United States that portrays the entire picture of the American Civil War. Exhibits and presentations are equally balanced and not biased to the Union or Confederate causes. The museum houses a collection of over 24,000 items including photographs, historic documents, manuscripts and artifacts.

The museum emphasizes on "the human side" of the Civil War and tells stories dating from 1850-1876, in order to explain the causes and aftermath of this critical time in American history.
