Full disclosure - we did not have time to go in the museum. But we did have time to do a chocolate tasting! Great - you get samples of liquid chocolate from around the world - and you can really taste the difference. We were there on a Thursday afternoon in November during "Covid" and there were no lines anywhere. We bought some things (chocolate ornaments) for our grandkids too.

Does not justify a separate admission. Very little to see. Should be included with an overall park ticket purchase

Very informative about Hershey's entrepreneurship and his plan for the Hershey community. They also have a special exhibit about Hershey's enterprise in Cuba, where he also developed a local community around the business. I learned quite a bit and I imagine children would enjoy the museum as well. Tips: Go early (before 11am) before the crowds with children arrive. There is free parking by the museum. There is a cafe adjacent to the museum, with a small but reasonable assortment of food and drink (my veggie quiche was pretty decent). Don't expect big discounts or assortment at the gift shop - I was hoping for more dark chocolate options and did not see much.

This is a wonderful museum and is so informative on Milton Hershey. He was not only a business man with a 4th grade education, but also gave his fortune to a school for orphaned boys. He lived the American dream and gave away his fortune. When you go- you must sample the chocolate from around the world! So interesting!
