Welcome!

Witness our unique heritage come to life at the Hershey History Center.  Explore exhibits chronicling the community built on chocolate, the military heroes that became world renowned, and the legendary hockey franchise that calls our town home.

Step back in time as you learn how our community's past has shaped our lives today.  

Children can discover interactive displays while guests experience a vast collection of artifacts, photographs, and archives defining our local narrative.  ​

 

We invite you to be our guest - visit, explore, and discover how the Hershey History Center is making History Happen Here.
