While Hershey’s Chocolate World is focused on entertainment, retail, and kids, the Hershey Story gives more to education and history. The museum shows a lot about chocolate but it really pays homage to the various areas Milton Hershey was involved in such as the building...More

Had a great visit at the museum. Took about 2 1/2 hours to view all the exhibits. The staff was very nice and eager to answer our questions. We also did the Chocolate Lab experience which was entertaining and educational.

We drove in from Philadelphia to make a quick visit, but they had closed early for a “private event”. No real apologies or concern. I wasn’t interested enough in what I could see from the outside to ever try to go back.
