Pennsylvania Military Museum

Kids enjoyed looking at and climbing on tanks outside. Price of admission is cheap. Can go through entire museum in probably 30 minutes, best appreciated by military buffs. Decent gift shop inside with cheap trinkets for kids.

This military history museum documents the organization of the armed services in the 20th century with a connection to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. There are self-guided inside exhibits with many rare pieces on display including the only surviving M1917 Renault tank designed for the marlin tank machine gun. Outside exhibits include tracked vehicles from 1945 to 1979, battleship guns off the USS Pennsylvania, and monuments and memorials to the 28th Infantry Division through two World Wars, Korea, and Iraq.
