  • A wonderful hidden gem in carlisle… I enjoy the interactive exhibits! I especially like the printing press, but it wasn’t working super well when I was there. Certain areas need some TLC, but it’s an I credible place to experience a piece of Pennsylvania history.
  • It was awesome, loved the material in there. The clocks were beautiful. Will definitely be going back there.
