  • Well presented history of Milton Hershey and the town. Personalized kiosks add to the displays. A very well maintained museum. Staff is very helpful.

  • This is an often afterthought for many families and park goers . This is a real place to go and is not the same place as “chocolate world” with the candy at the end of the ride. This takes you through the actual history involving Milton Hershey and how the park, company, and area in general came to be. There are interactive features and there is fun here. Worth going to if you’ve done the gardens, world, and the park. Definitely worth checking out for any fan of history and American culture as well.
  • A very informative and creative display of the events that made Hershey the company it is today. Make sure to give yourself enough time to see and read the details of the museum. Also for the museum-I’d give a mini Hershey bar or Hershey Kiss at the end of the museum tour for all guests. After all the reading and videos on chocolate, it’d be nice to have a small treat at the end. Also the cafe downstairs was amazing and the crispy chicken wraps were surprisingly the best I’ve ever had. Definitely recommend eating there for brunch.
