Great experience for my kids especially! We were heading from MA to Virginia and found this to be the perfect stop halfway. It’s a nice place to visit with plenty to learn about the history of Hershey.

What You'll Get


At first, the Aztecs punished their enemies by pouring hot chocolate down their throats, until the proud warriors found out their foes actually liked it and promptly switched to molten gold. Relive the pleasure of those lucky few conquistadors with today's Groupon: for $20, you get four tickets to the museum experience (up to a $40 value) at The Hershey Story, The Museum on Chocolate Avenue in downtown Hershey.

Tantalizing historically savvy sweet teeth, The Hershey Story takes visitors on a voyage through the life and times of Milton S. Hershey, founder of one of the nation's most prominent chocolate empires. During each visit, guests wind down pathways of milky memories spanning more than 150 years, chronicling Milton S. Hershey’s rollycoaster ride of success, from failed businessman to the candy king who transformed chocolate from a luxury treat into an everyday occurrence and delicious building material.

Peruse a slew of exhibits, including Hershey's innovative production techniques and how the brand flourished beyond its candy-bar identity. For an additional fee, those seeking a more active approach to their chocolate schooling may pay a visit to the make-your-own chocolate lab ($7.50–$10 per person) or The Countries of Origin Chocolate Tasting ($9.95 per person). Commemorate the afternoon of sweet stalking with a closing trip to the museum shop, where edible treasures and souvenirs abound.
