It was ok, nothing special. A small hershey museum upstairs, cafe and gift shop on first floor. Try the chocolate world on the next block.

So, here was a great little enlightenment when it comes to all things Hershey. It was really something special to learn about the history of Mr. Hershey and how the town was built around his company and the workers of the town. This small museum offers a chance to create or mix chocolate to make your own chocolate creation. The price for each Museum $12.50 and Chocolate lab $12.50 or both for $20, so go for both if you're going here. Parking was free, and a little more than I would have like to have paid, but it's worth it, children prices vary based on age. There is also a coffee shop, and gift shop, along with chocolate tasting from different parts of the world. Check out their website before going!

We didn't have time for the museum, but enjoyed the gift shop and passport maker.

The museum was informational but not a huge hit with my kids. The chocolate lab, however, was well worth the visit and the $10 admission.
