Interior

The outside is nice even at night due to the lighting. The interior is the amazing part. All marble, stand directly under the dome and whisper. You can hear your echo clearly.

Everyone know about Milton Hershey & his chocolate bars but there was much more to him than that. This is the place to learn about the unique school that has given wonderful opportunities to so many underprivileged children.

Founder's Hall at the Milton Hershey School it is beautiful marble stairs. Breath taking of elegances from a man who loved children and want to make life better for them. The gardens are delightful to walk and relax in them. Amazing place to photograph.

Founders Hall was closed for renovations on 8/30/16. No sign as to duration. Grounds are very nice. Good stop, if Hall was open when coming in off of Pa turnpike. Hope to visit next time. Call to ensure Hall is open if you plan to visit.

Our group took a tour of the Milton Hershey School - Founders Hall. Our tour guide Ken was wonderful! He really brought the Milton Hershey story to life in a way that all ages could relate. The entire visit and story of Milton Hershey is amazing.
