Hershey starts here! How did Milton Hershey go from bankruptcy to brilliance, transforming chocolate from a luxury to an everyday treat? How did he invent a community? Why did he give away his fortune? That's the Hershey story. Enjoy a 45-minute, hands on class in the Chocolate Lab and sample warm drinking chocolate from around the world at Tastings. Grab a delicious treat from the Pantry Café and find a unique assortment of keepsakes and chocolate at Museum Shop.

If you enjoy learning new things this was a great little stop. The museum isn't extremely large but it was very informative. I left very impressed by what Mr. Hershey accomplished and the legacy he left.

This place is great - you can spend hours in Chocolate world store. They have all the hard to find Hershey products. Can't walk out with going to factory tour and buying some chocolate chip cookies made fresh.

We stopped by here during a weekend visit to Hershey Park. My 4yo son really enjoyed the downstairs exhibit, which was an interactive experience where one learned and tried different aspects of jobs in the factory.

A go-at-your-own-pace museum with tons of info about Mr. Hershey, his legacy, and the town. Really neat place. Definitely do the tasting after your walk around the museum. A tasty treat and a really great place for people of all ages.
