Visitors Center

Come see for yourself all that Milton Hershey School offers

Want to tour the Milton Hershey School campus and see the legacy of Milton Hershey in action? Our Visitors Center is staffed with expert hosts who guide thousands of visitors each year from around the world. We'd love for you to experience first-hand what this historic school offers its students as well as take in our eye-catching buildings.

Stop by the Visitors Center, located in the Rotunda of Founders Hall, the main administration building of Milton Hershey School near Meadow Lane and Route 322. Please enter in the side of Founders Hall under the overhang. The Visitors Center is up the ramp directly in front of you after you enter those doors, and then to the left in the large Rotunda area once you reach the top of the ramp.

The center is open year round, seven days a week, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, except for School holidays.

Visitors will get to watch a brief 15-minute video that gives insight of all the programs and opportunities available to students. A host is on duty to welcome your group, to introduce the video, and to answer questions.

  • Bus tour groups are welcome to stop by the Founders Hall Visitors Center and learn more about Milton Hershey School. Please allow 45-60 minutes (includes the 15-minute video) for the visit.
