New Hershey Museum

The Hershey Story: The Museum On Chocolate Avenue opened its doors for the first time recently in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The $23.5 million museum chronicles the life and early years of Milton Hershey, founder of the Hershey company.

While the Museum has no direct connection to Hershey Park, visitors to the area now have one more attraction to check out.

The museum features "historic candy-making artifacts, personal items belonging to Hershey, interactive displays, films, working chocolate-making equipment, hands-on candy-making classes, taste-testing of six warm, chocolatey liquids made solely from beans and light dining at the Cafe Zooka — named for the penny-candy Zooka Sticks made by Hershey in his Lancaster plant."
