HARRISBURG, Pa.--Police are investigating a weekend burglary at the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg.

It happened between 5:30 p.m. Saturday and 12:40 p.m. Sunday, police say. A window on the museum's ground level was broken during the burglary, and was being repaired on Monday morning.

The suspect(s) took off with numerous antique firearms, police added. None, they say, were from the National Rifle Association exhibit "Guns and Lace", which ran last week in conjunction with The Great American Outdoor Show.

Approximately a dozen protesters gathered outside the museum on Wednesday in opposition of the exhibit.

Dauphin County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2000 for information that leads to an arrest in this incident.

Anyone with information can call the Dauphin County Police dispatch at 717-558-6900 and ask to speak with a city detective.
