I consider this to be one of my favorite stops on our recent vacation in PA. We of course took in all of the normal Hershey sites but a family member suggested that we see the school. You have to ask about it when at the Hersey store but they gladly give you directions. There are free tours from 11:00... More

You can go into the school's visitor's center- learn about Milton Hershey and his wife and get to see and hear the story's of the man and the school which now supports 2,000 students in this school. The tour and descriptions were FANTASTIC. AMAZING

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
