Sensory Friendly Evening at The Hershey Story Museum
During my visit to Hershey PA for Sweet Welcome I learned about The Hershey Story Museum offering a sensory friendly option for families like mines. Our son has different challenges when we travel and finding options that help make it more enjoyable for our family is a huge plus. So it’s only natural that I share with you that the museum offers these options for guests.
The next scheduled sensory friendly night is this week but be sure to follow The Hershey Story on Facebook to keep up to date with their events calendar.
Friday, June 5
5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Guests with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other special sensory needs have the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed evening at the museum. They may enjoy interactive exhibits about Milton Hershey and the industry and town he created, and a hands-on exhibit that recreates jobs in the original chocolate factory. A walk-up activity in the Chocolate Lab that includes making your own chocolate bar is included. A special price of $8.50 per person includes all activities; one adult is admitted free with each family or group. Prepayment is not required, but please register for the evening: 717.520.5587 or[email protected].
