Milton Hershey Museum, Hershey, PA

      After our trolley tour of Hershey, PA, on Wednesday morning, which included a stop at Founders Hall on the campus of the Milton Hershey School, we went to “The Hershey Story: The Museum on Chocolate Avenue,” commonly called the Hershey Museum at 63 W. Chocolate Ave., Hershey, PA  17033 (717/534-3439; www.HersheyStory.org ), before leaving Hershey for the night to visit with some friends and attend midweek Bible study with them (we returned to Hershey the next day).  With breakthrough technology, the museum experience places one inside the imagination of Milton Hershey and tells how he went from bankruptcy to brilliance and transformed chocolate from a luxury to an everyday treat, how he built a community, and why he gave away his fortune twice.  There are special activities where kids can solve puzzles throughout the museum using a special workbook and become a Milton Hershey Apprentice.  There are also a Museum Shop and the Café Zooka where we ate on Wednesday.
