Despite the $10/adult price of admission ($7.50 for kids 3-12 years-old), The Hershey Story is a very nicely done museum with a little something for everyone. Maybe I'm spoiled on the free Smithsonian museums in nearby DC, but I have to get used to the fact that there's no free lunch in Hershey. Many of the displays are interactive and there is a very informative timeline about Milton Hershey that explains how he got into the chocolate business and changed the world by making it affordable to the common man. The chocolate making process is nicely explained along with history of the town, worker's issues at the factory, products that have come and gone over the years, and philanthropic history that Hershey has done over the years which continue to this day. The little kids can make cookies and paper snowflakes and adults can partake in a chocolate making exercise (all at additional cost). The Hershey Story is a decent way of spending a couple of hours if you have the luxury of moving at a slow pace. Since we went in February, the museum was not crowded and we moved at a leisurely pace. I understand the summer is very busy. It is definitely worth a visit! The restrooms are nice and clean too.
