  • Lovely displays and knowledgeable volunteers. Of course, the whole history of the Carlisle Indian School is a magnificent look at an important part of American History in the saga of Native Americans. 
  • Great museum. Was my first time going today; this was great. A real history of Cumberland County, set up very nicely and great detail involved that is appreciated.
  • I live in the Midwest and I can not be traveling to Cumberland County all the time to do research. It would be nice if they would digitized the various Cumberland County Newspapers. If you live there great, but when you live far away not so good. They are always sending me notices to contribute to them and I would if they had some resources I could use. Shippensburg, Harrisburg and Gettysburg have their Newspapers online. It is a great research tool. They say they are premier.
  • Stumbled on to this after a visit to the History Shop/Cumberland Valley Visitor Center around the corner. Check out the exhibits ... especially upstairs. Great way to while away and morning .... then go down the street to your choice of restaurants/coffee spots/shopping. Vintage small American small town.
