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.

They did not offer the chocolate tastings on weekends, and the chocolate lab was sold out during the times we were there, so buy your tickets ahead of time if that's what you're interested in. I would have liked a couple of samples during our...More

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.
