The bad news is that the Hershey Museum has closed its doors. The great news is that The Hershey Story will open in January, 2009.

The Hershey Story is an "immersive museum environment" encompassing

  • the Museum Experience: fun and educational exhibits
  • the Chocolate Lab: hands-on activities and experiements that give visitors a unique perspective on our favorite food
  • the Museum Shop, featuring a wide variety of Hershey collectibles, books, recipes and, of course, chocolate
  • and Café Zooka, a great place to bring family and friends for a tempting array of light food, baked goods, drinks and desserts, all with an accent on chocolate. Café Zooka is also the home of Chocolate Tasting, a chance to sample exotic chocolate flavors from around the world.

The Hershey Story will also feature educational programs providing opportunities for families and groups to enhance their knowledge of history, industry, culture and, of course, chocolate.
