Reed To Create National Museum Of Ice And Snow

(HARRISBURG) – Mayor Stephen Reed announced today that Harrisburg will eventually become home to the National Museum of Ice and Snow.

“We will at once begin transforming the National Civil War Museum in Reservoir Park into this new museum, which will soon house a critical mass of ice, snow and other frozen matter,” Reed said.

The mayor said the Civil War artifacts currently housed at the facility will be sold off, with the funds to be put toward the decommissioning of the city’s entire fleet of snow plows which will become exhibits at the museum.

“It’s not like we’re actually using them to clear the streets,” Reed said.

Reed said he thought of the idea for the new museum when last Wednesday’s closure of the Civil War museum due to weather had no noticeable effect on attendance figures.
