The Hershey Story, The Museum on Chocolate Avenue

Fodor's Review

The Hershey Story, which replaced the Hershey Museum, is an highly interactive facility that tells all about the life and work of Milton S. Hershey, who founded the town bearing his name and just about everything in it. On display are a working Hershey Kisses wrapping machine and other memorabilia from the company's long history. A highlight is the Chocolate Lab, where you can take classes on grinding cocoa beans by hand, and tempering, molding, and dipping chocolate. Café Zooka offers a range of light meals, snacks, desserts, and a sampler of hot chocolates from around the world.
