What a fun and educational trip. We took the tour around town and found out about what an exceptional couple the Hersheys were. (So many lives were changed by their generosity and sacrifices) The legacy of Milton Hershey lives on today! What a rags to riches story. Don't miss the Apostolic Clock and check out it's history about the betrayal of Christ!
Visitors can become Milton Hershey s apprentice and receive a special booklet that will help them discover the Chocolate King s secrets to success.
And of course you will leave with a "sweet" smile on your face. MMmm good!

The Hershey Museum on Park Drive no longer exists.

The Hershey Story, located on Chocolate Avenue is a new museum. The Hershey Story tells the tale of Milton S. Hershey's rise from rags to riches. The museum includes state-of-the art interactive exhibits, including an amazing digital map of Hershey that includes images from the Hershey Archives -- that visitors can view right from their own personal console.

The museum includes a Chocolate Lab, where visitors can taste chocolates from around the world and engage in other seasonal activities. Also, the museum has ever-changing exhibits in a special gallery (many of the items on display in the original Hershey Museum are seen here).

Guests can order lunch (or snacks) at the lovely Cafe Zooka--located in the museum. We live nearby -- and LOVE the museum!
