‪This museum has a great Christmas train garden‬
ديسمبر 2019
‪Took our 4 year old granddaughter and she was fascinated by the train garden...25 buttons to push to activate scenes on the layout. I wish we had allowed more time so she could have enjoyed the hands on discovery room and we adults could have seen more of the museum.‬

‪Fantastic for all ages!‬
أكتوبر 2019
‪Our family (including kids ages 9, 7 and 4) loved this museum! The building is quite nice - bright and clean with many old beams throughout. In talking with the nice woman who greeted us, the building was originally a barn which had been restored. There is a children's "discovery room" which was a lot of fun - it included a set-up of an old school room, a 'general store', a historic kitchen, dress up clothes, and train table. The museum was very well done with a lot of history of the area - many historical items, pictures, and displays - some of them interactive which our children liked. The gift shop was nice with a variety of books, some locally made clothing and various other items. Absolutely worth a visit!‬

‪Walk in the park‬
زوجان • سبتمبر 2018
‪We went to the 6th annual walk in the park hosted by the historical society. It was really fun to walk around Hershey park while it was closed to the general public. There were 6 presentation stations that had a speaker talking about different things from the past such as rides or games that they used to have. We were able to ride on the carousel and also get some snacks, included with our ticket price. Overall a good time and quite nostalgic.‬

‪Hershey Derry Township Historical Society
Hershey, PA

Travelers
2 married adults – no children.

Signage / Parking Lot
Grade: C
Finding the building was difficult. It’s buried along a side road across from a shopping plaza. The parking lot is tiny. Disappointingly, it may be sufficient. The museum is also tiny. We only found it because we were specifically looking for it. It is not mentioned at any of the other attractions and has no “this way to” type signs out on the larger roads. The city could help out by making it easier to find.

Time Commitment
We got through the entire museum in less than an hour. I can’t really see spending more than that here.

Cost
It was inexpensive ($4 per adult?).

Amenities
Grade: A-
The museum is about the history of Derry Township. There is no “city” of Hershey. It is an accepted name for the area, but it is not incorporated or the legal name. There are four primary areas: a history of Derry Township, a room recreating the office of Major Dick Winters, memorabilia from the Hershey Bears hockey team, and a timeline for the creation of the Milton Hershey School. During the Christmas holidays they have a Train Room, which was being set up when we were there. That might have been a lot of fun, but all we saw were lots of boxes.

Cleanliness
Grade: A-
The facility seemed clean. The bathrooms weren’t bad either, older, but clean. Nowhere is ever perfectly clean, so they get an A-, but I had no complaints.

Staff Interaction
Grade: A-
Every interaction we had with a member of the staff was positive and cordial. Most of the people there were actually pretty quiet, but they were friendly. They are all clearly volunteers, so they struggled with various tasks, but did so with patience and a sense of humor. Ask them anything you want – they know their subject matter.

Random Miscellany
Grade: A-
The building is completely enclosed and air conditioned or heated. This works 365 days a year, whether it’s raining or snowing (or even sunny!). The facility is not large and is all on one floor, although there might have been a ramp or step up or down into a room or two – I don’t remember.

Summary:
Grade: A-
I could be wrong, but I don’t really see kids finding this place fun outside of the seasonal train display. There aren’t many “hands-on” exhibits or activities to keep them active. For history buffs interested in more than just a mixture of cocoa and sugar, this is interesting. My husband and I enjoyed our time here and would take other adults back. It’s an inexpensive way to extend your stay in Hershey and learn something in the process.

The docent indicated that they hoped to add a trolley on display in the front yard soon. That would be a lot of fun and add a lot to the museum.‬

‪Some interesting exhibits‬
زوجان • سبتمبر 2017
‪We love Historical Society exhibits, and so hurried over here this morning (9/25), after breakfast. The volunteers, docents, etc. are always so nice and eager to share information at these (usually small) Museums. Not here. We were surprised at the aloofness and dismissive attitude of the woman behind the counter. She didn't even greet us.

We had expected more, but, nevertheless, we really liked the "Brownstone" exhibit, about the Hummelstown quarry industry. There are photos of magnificent buildings, all on the National Register of Historic Places. The Hummelstown Brownstone Company began making these bricks in 1905. There is a Church still standing in Hummelstown (Main Street) made of this brownstone.

Another very interesting exhibit is about Major Dick Winters, who served in the 101st Airborne in World War II, and was one of the "Band of Brothers". A really thorough and finished exhibit.

Not everything is marked or explained. There is an entire wall of "Images of Hershey". Photos of lots of interesting looking houses, but nothing else. If this is a Museum, there should be more information provided. Some exhibits are very sparse, and look forlorn. I am aware that it is a difficult job collecting artifacts and properly displaying them. However, this place looks like it is not trying.‬

‪Interesting small museum; but it's only $4. And great interactive things to do for young children. There are also memorabilia about local sports teams and sports heros in Hershey.‬

‪Definitely Check This Place Out‬
رجال الأعمال • يناير 2017
‪If not for any other reason, you really must check out the Major Dick Winters exhibit. Other points of interest include Hummelstown Brownstone, Bears memorabilia, an old map of the area and a trolley stop. More renovations are being completed, so you really don't want to miss this.‬

‪Why did we wait so long to visit-‬
زوجان • ديسمبر 2016
‪We have lived in Hershey for 9 years and never gone. Well, out of town family visit and they had researched and wanted to go. Really exceeds the expectations I had for sure. There is the stuff about Milton Hershey but then there is so much more. The Dick Winters part is worth the visit alone. And the Brownstone story about the quarry here is amazing. I was really impressed and we spent about 2 hours. My wife and I plan to return as there was more for us to see, but hey we live here. Probably best for adults and not young children. The staff was very generous with both time and information.‬
