The Hershey Story Museum, Hershey Reviews
Our tickets were free as part of our package with the Hershey Lodge. This museum is very small but very informative for adults who can read everything and have the time to stroll around without small children. While it is very clean and well maintained, it is NOT a place for young children under age 6. It is very quiet, stuffy, and I did not find the staff to be particularly friendly or helpful. My 5 year-old was bored because he can't read everything on his own and my 3 year-old was bored because there was nothing hands on for children her age. Yes, we did the taste lab and it was cute and informative. To charge what they charge per head to do the equivalent of taking melted chocolate and using a spoon to put it in a mold while learning a few facts is not worth the time or money. We can do that at home. Making your own chocolate bar at Chocolate World is far more exciting.
We loved the museum and Chocolate Lab. The museum was very informative, had great displays, and even kept our 5 year old entertained. We loved the lab, where we all made our own chocolate bars. I read in past reviews that others thought it was too small and expensive. Compared to other places in the area, the price is on point. It may be a bit small, but we were there for over 2 hours.
I'm a born and raised Hershey girl and I used to work at the muesem at the old location by the skating rink. This one is nice and had a lot more Hershey information. I do miss hearing the clock chime and watch it move during the day and many other things. But it's still a great experience!! If you love chocolate and want to know about a great man who built a town around his product so people could have jobs, built a school so orphans could learn and get a job or go to college and a man who survived the Titanic... Go to the museum! Have a blast! And a drink in the Cafe!
The museum is small, costs around $12 a person before discounts. There is free admission for a active duty military which includes an additional $3 off each person's ticket in their group. They also give a $3 discount to teachers. there is a big parking garage in the back which is free to park in which is a plus. Several of the exhibits are interactive for the kids. All in all, it was nice to stop if you're in the area to learn the history. I would not however go out on my way to the museum.
The museum looks very informative and complete. However, the cafe in the lobby is wonderful. My family and I needed to grab some breakfast before Hershey Park. We were not disappointed . We were seated outside on the brick patio. Our server took excellent care of us , our fresh and bold coffee never made it to half full as she was right on it. The quality of the food was so much better than what is served from Starbucks or Dunkin. We frequent Hershey as we have family there and of course the park and will definitely go back .
