We really liked the displays and the spaces allotted. I was a little put off by being told I couldn't wait by the front door-as they were doing an ice bucket challenge-I did pay my admission fee.

Football may be Americas game but after visiting the MLB Hall of Fame I now know that baseball is alive and well. Over 3,600 people visited the same day I did. Take a trip through not only baseball but a trip through American History. I thought I knew a lot about baseball but now know a lot more. The displays... More

Great museum - very clean, excellent exhibits, friendly and knowledgeable staff. We are not huge fans of baseball, but nevertheless found some interesting memorabilia and facts, and found ourselves genuinely moved by the experience.

The NBHOF is for baseball lovers, but it is also a wonderful museum of American history. If you are a history buff, you would find lots to love there. My favorite part of the place is the new Babe Ruth exhibit. He was more than an iconic baseball player; he was the world's first international star. I know plenty about... More

We went with our baseball loving family and it was really a wonderful day. As boring as I think baseball is I had a great time. I'd recommend it to anyone

The hall is open until 9 p.m. All the workers know, and more importantly LOVE baseball. If you buy a ticket after 7 p.m. it is good for the next day. The stories, memorabilia and people are the best. It is great to see a place shared with several generations in one family. Go and spend some time and Play... More

What a wonderful place! Just Like I thought it would be. A must see for the baseball fanatic. Greatly detailed and extremely well maintained. It took me 6 and 1/2 hours to go through the entire museum, but I read everything. Can't wait to go back!

If you love or even just like baseball, history or Americana, this is a great place for you. It is everything I expected. The museum exhibits are wonderfully informative and meticulously constructed. The Hall of Fame was so special; my son had great fun finding players he knows. Special kudos to the HOF for free entry for active AND retired... More

This place is great for the baseball enthusiasts! It looks a little deceivingly small from the street, but the building goes way back and there is a lot of great stuff in there. We saw just about everything in only a few hours, so you can drive in from a neighboring town where hotel rooms are typically more abundant and... More
