Hershey Story: The Museum on Chocolate Avenue [PA]

The Hershey Story takes visitors on a journey through the life of Milton S. Hershey: the man, his chocolate company, the town that bears his name, and his legacy. It explores the accomplishments of an American entrepreneur through interactive museum exhibits and laboratory classes.

The museum offers exhibits, in-museum interactive classes and scavenger-hunt tours for school groups, workshops for visitors, and educational and recreational events.
