What a great place to visit and take a short tour. Although there's a bit of walking involved (I have bad knees). If you take your time, it's a fantastic tour. The building architecture was absolutely beautiful!

If you are in Hershey, stop by the Milton Hershey school and tour Founders Hall. It provides a wonderful history of the school and philanthropy of Milton Hershey to provide a world-class school and home for needy children. It's an important and interesting aspect of Hershey that most people miss.

Hershey is still a small town, Founder's Hall gives the history of the school for boys, now coed, that Milton Hershey founded. Worth visiting.

I cant believe I never heard about the ideals of Milton Hershey- you must visit founders hall and learn about what Milton's legacy is about. I am amazed at the opportunity provided to the young children in America who need the help. Founders hall is free, beautiful, and you will learn so much!

It's very impressive to see the kind of work Milton Hershey did and the good that has come from the vision that he had.

As part of our trolley tour through Hershey PA, we stopped at the Milton Hershey School and looked around. The building was very impressive. But the story of the school was an inspiration. It takes a special kind of man to give his entire fortune away to help needy kids, and to give them a shot at life.

This is a must-see when you're visiting Hershey! Founder's Hall is a museum in itself. There's a wealth of history on the walls, on the floor, and in the film, which the workers at the visitor's center will be happy to show you! They are extremely knowledgeable and lovely, and will be happy to spend as much time as you'd... More
