  • We had a great time at the museum. A lot of reading but also a lot to look at! Loved the lab where we got to make a treat and of course the chocolate tasting…worth the visit for sure!  more »
  • We have been to Hershey World a number of times and taken the tour there as well as the streetcar tour of the city. This museum gave us so much more in depth information about Hershey, his wife...  more »
  • Not bad at all! Depends if you're a "blow through the museum quickly" or a "stop at every exhibit and read the content" type of person. I'm the latter thus I enjoyed it. If you're a family with children? Perhaps not so much. That's what the amusement/water parks are for. I would recommend for adults passing through Hershey with several hours to fill.
  • We were pleasantly surprised. We planned a trip to Hershey because it had been many years. We did not know what to expect but loved the self guided tour. We did the chocolate lab and loved making our own chocolate bar and learning about where chocolate comes from. We also did the chocolate tasting and would highly recommend that.
