After having difficulty in finding a parking spot my second impression was that my military ID allowed me free admission. This attraction shows the history of turkey hill through exhibits and interactive activities. It offers complimentary tastings of Turkey Hill tea products and ice cream....More

Very disappointed. $28 dollars for 2 seniors and a 12 year old. Boring.... Little explanation of what to expect, long lines for relatively dull exhibits. Ladies passing out ice cream were terrific and fun.More

This is an interesting stop if you have an interest in the subject matter. It does a good job telling the story of the family that owns Turkey Hill, the company's history and how ice cream is made. Plenty to interest small children and adults...More

This place was very cute and educational. We took a trip here after a weekend at Hershey. The kids enjoyed it. We did the taste lab, they enjoyed making their own ice cream.
