Congratulations to the Hershey Museum

Posted on January 11th, 2009

Management Resources is proud of our role developing the preliminary business and operating plan for The Hershey Story: The Museum on Chocolate Avenue and adds our congratulations to the recent opening. The Hershey Story tells the story of chocolate magnate Milton S. Hershey. It begins with his early days in Lancaster to the building of his famous chocolate factory in Derry Township, Dauphin County, and includes the town that grew up around that factory and continues to thrive to this day.

Located at 111 W. Chocolate Ave., the $23.5 million 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.

"We're now in the heart of the community," Bischof said. "People can walk here." Admission to the museum is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $7.50 for children. Classes in the chocolate lab are $10 if bought separately. Admission to the museum and the lab together is $15. Children under 3 are free.
