Chocolate Covered February Continues!
Known year-round as The Sweetest Place on Earth, Hershey celebrates February as "Chocolate Covered February," a special month-long, town-wide celebration of all things chocolate.

Here at the AACA Museum, Inc. guests can enjoy the 1920s gallery that depicts downtown Hershey in this iconic decade. 

We're also home to the original Hershey’s Kissmobile Cruiser! The perfect photo opportunity for February.

Throughout the month, visitors can participate in a Hershey’s Kisses Scavenger Hunt. These plush kisses can be hidden just about anywhere – how many Hershey’s Kisses can you find?


Create your own Kissmobile!
Monday, February 18th
11:00 - 2:00

As part of our Chocolate Covered February festivities, guests can create their Kissmobile out of Hershey’s chocolate products on Presidents’ Day, February 18 from 11- 2 pm.

It is recommended for ages 4 & older.
