Bass Pro Shops/Outdoor World, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Welcome to our store! As you enter, you will see so many amazing things. Some are large & some are small! Each department is decorated by murals hand-painted by Pennsylvania artisans. Each mural depicts a beautiful snapshot of the terrain of PA. You will find the farm fields, waterways & the majestic mountains. State and record fish & wildlife mounts are displayed alongside local historical prints featuring early tourists and residents enjoying all types of outdoor adventures.
