There are a number of museums located near The Hotel Hershey, many of which pay tribute to the hotel’s founder Milton S. Hershey and his chocolate empire. Hershey’s Chocolate World is free to guests of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel and features the Chocolate Making Tour Ride, which explains the process the Hershey brand uses to create its famous chocolate treats. The Hershey Story: The Museum on Chocolate Ave. is dedicated to the history of the Hershey family and company. If you want more than just Hershey history, take the one-hour drive to either Harrisburg or Gettysburg, where museums on the Civil War await.
