Hershey Museum Website


All ages are welcome at the Hershey Museum. Visit the "Discovery Room" where kids of all ages can get their hands on history.
The Hershey Museum tells the story of a great man named Milton Hershey. Not only about his business of Hershey's Chocolate, but about his care for the community and needy children. The Hershey Museum Began in 1933. It was original The Hershey American Indian Museum. The contents for the museum came from a purchase Milton Hershey had made of Native American artifacts from across the continent. Two years later he bought a collection of Pennsylvania "Dutch" objects. This represented the heritage of many Hershey residents, including Milton himself.
