“Very nice facility”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Lots of displays had interactive components. The story is very interesting. This man was amazing. We went to the LAB and made our own candy bar. Lots of kid with us but it was fun and the kids seemed to love it. We like this place better than the Chocolate world tour.

“Overpriced - Don't Bother. Would be nice if it was free”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

VERY SMALL. There are a few cool machines to look at, and a other nice things. But, I don't enjoy paying $10 per person and only being entertained for 1 hour. I would have skipped this if I had known.

“Nice, but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Plan to spend at least an hour and a half here to take in all the exhibits. Museum isn't really geared to the little ones, and will become boring to them. Lots of reading to do, nice exhibiting of antiques related to Milton, the school, and the town of Hershey itself. Large gift shop and a chocolate bar. A bit pricey at $10.00.

“Nice Afternoon Outing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is a nice way to spend an afternoon. The employees gave us an I Spy pamphlet so that we could look for certain items as we walked through the museum. Afterwards we stopped and had a cookie in the attached coffee shop. Everyone was very nice and helpful.
