Visit our campus, tour Founders Hall, and learn about our mission
Founders Hall is one of the most unique and magnificent pieces of architecture in central Pennsylvania. The building is open to the public for tours every day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., except on school holidays.
Our Visitors Center is staffed with expert hosts who guide thousands of groups from around the world each year. We invite you to experience what this historic school offers its students, as the mission established by Milton and Catherine Hershey still thrives.
The Visitors Center is located in the Rotunda of Founders Hall, located near the intersection of Meadow Lane and East Governor Road (Route 322). Please enter the building from the covered entrance in Parking Lot A.
