We arrived about 30 minutes before closing and were given a personal mini tour by a young woman working in the office. We were so impressed by the Milton Hershey story that we took several pamphlets and gave them to friends for donations. What a wonderful man, an inspiration. Some of the young "Dot.Com" guys should take a page from... More

We went here during the Hershey North America Track Meet for the Celebration. This hall is absolutely gorgeous and the idea behind the school itself is a great thing that more companies should model after. If you have not heard about the history and the school take the time to read about it and Milton Hershey. After hearing it we... More

We went on a trip to Hershey Park and my wife and I did not want to go to the park, so we decided to do some local sight-seeing. We picked a day in which the founders hall was being used for a Girl Scout ceremony. While this made us feel a little weird as if we were intruding, there... More

This was part of the Milton Hershey School and this tour is free. When you go inside and see the beautiful marble from Vermont and also the chandeliers, they are breath-taking. You will also see pictures by years of all the children that came through the school all because of the generosity of Milton Hershey.

My husband found the school on a map with a visitor's center, so we stopped to visit. What a neat school and building. I would definitely recommend stopping to see this place. Very interesting with an interesting history, started by Milton Hershey.

Best part of our trip. We almost didn't go, thought it might not be much to see. What an impressive building. The rotunda and all the marble is truly beautiful. We were able to get a look inside the assembly hall, again very impressive. And the story behind Milton and Catherine Hershey and their charitable efforts make you want to... More
