The Hershey Story will be offering special programs just for Homeschool families every Wednesday in September!

Join us for a hands-on session at 9:30 a.m. OR 11:30 a.m., each lasting about one hour. During the session, your family will participate in a “Taste Sensations” learning adventure where you will:
– Make your own chocolate bar,
– Try single origin chocolates from around the world,
– Participate in activities focused on taste and how Hershey’s chocolate gets its special flavor.

Each session will be open for a limited number of participants and will take place in a large classroom to allow plenty of space for each family. All social distancing and health protocols will be in place including utilization of single-use items and thorough sanitizing of reusable items and the classroom between each session.

Families may explore the Museum Experience with special “Taste Sensations” scavenger hunts before and/or after the session. Therefore, we recommend allowing at least 90 minutes to 2 hours for the whole experience.

$10 per person for everyone over age 2; pre-registration is required by calling Elizabeth Lindsay at 717-520-5588.
To properly space all families, online tickets are not available. Space is limited.
