The Hershey Story Museum, Hershey Reviews - Write a Review
The kids were bored here. It is a lot of stopping and reading. I was bored, too. I probably won't go back. Admission is free, but there are activities that you can pay for in the building such as a flight if chocolate drinks from around the world. They have a small gift shop. The good news is that it is close to everything in the town so you won't go way out of your way to check it out for yourself. If you love history, it may be right up your alley.
The exhibition has a creative way to show how to chocolate back to the old time; however the missing part of the museum I feel is the story about Milton S. Hershey himself. That is why I ranked 4-star. Staff was nice and friendly. They also offered Chocolate Lab, sounds interesting but we skipped it due to my limited time there. Garage parking is free for visitors
We visited the museum but did not pay for the lab. It was clean, well laid out, interesting facts (we enjoyed the time line of everything that has happen while Hershey was been selling chocolate). I only knock off a star for not being particularly kid friendly. They do offer a hands on kid location but even in that area, we felt afraid to make much noise. If you really want to come and learn about the history of Hershey chocolate, we suggest leaving the kids with a sitter.
What an awesome place. Tours that explain the process of how chocolate is made. Very educational and done in a fun way. Great shops and great staff . Awesome experience. More available to do than we were able to do.
The museum is up to date & has so many different aspects. I really enjoyed getting the history behind Mr. Hershey's journey to establishing such a tremendous legacy. The Chocolate Lab looked like a lot of fun, but did not choose to do it. The chocolate tasting was a lot of fun and we learned some new things along the way.
