If you are a baseball fan this is the place to go. Three floors filled with everything you ever wanted to know about baseball. We traveled 3-1/2 hours to get there as my husband is a die-hard Yankee fan. We were not disappointed. The museum is very easy to navigate and so interesting even if you are not a fan.

My husband is the baseball fan so my expectations were low. But this proved to be a lot of fun and very interesting. Recommend to all.

The Baseball of Fame is not just the best sports museum, it's the best museum period. Everything was clearly maintained, the staff there was friendly, you could take pictures of anything in the entire musuem, and the gift shop was awesome. I highly recommend taking the fan in your family here for a great experience. They have so much history... More

It is cliched to say this is the mecca for baseball fans but it is true. You have to go. What really impressed me about the Hall of Fame is that despite having an almost guaranteed audience it is obvious that they are expending a great deal of effort to make the Hall and its exhibits a top quality place...

This was a very nice little roadtrip from the Buffalo area. Not right off the highway like it seems ... probably 26 miles. Once there, Cooperstown is a very quaint "little" town. If you are a baseball fanatic, then this is a must see. Make sure you do all three floors. You are able to get your hand stamped and... More

Went in March - no crowds. Had the whole place to ourselves. I guess If you are a big baseball fan, it's pretty awesome. My daughter is the fan!! Enjoyed looking at all the exhibits and taking pics. Three floors. Nice gift shop with a variety of prices for all budgets. Enjoyed our stay.

A wonderful walk down memory lane...staring with memorabilia from the 1800's, the earliest known "baseball clubs," Babe Ruth to Derek Jeter...self-guided tours throughout the museum....about 3 hours, without crowds...

Finally made it to the baseball hall of fame after many years of wanting to take the kids to see it. We got there 5 minutes before the doors opened and stayed 5 & half hours it was great. To see all that great memorable from over a hundred years to present is awesome to see for any baseball fan.... More

Baseball fans: make the trip. Lots to see, lots of interactivity, fun for the whole family. Be prepared for swarms of kids in the summertime.
