A 4 rating is given for lack of parking-it's like trolling a mall parking lot before Christmas, and we weren't even there during the peak season. There is a trolley just outside town for a 'park and ride' (seasonal). The facility is HUGE. We spent 4 hours and just skimmed all the info. Staff is plentiful, friendly and helpful. There... More

First visit since '92. Spend two hours or two days. Exhibits are wonderful. If you love baseball, you've got to visit here sometime!

There are no words to describe the Hall of Fame. For a baseball lover it is paradise. Was there 20 years ago and thought it was good then, oh boy, know it is fabulous.

Fantastic collection of artifacts and the history of baseball. Parking is not good. 2hr parking anywhere close to the hall and you will spend more than 2hrs there for sure.

My friends and I visited this museum while visiting Cooperstown. It was my first time visiting so I was very excited. Let me tell you, this place was absolutely fantastic! I loved it! The museum is 3 floors and is time consuming if you want to read everything. You start on the second floor and continue on the 3rd. The... More

What a fun place for lovers of baseball to gather and learn about the athletes that have lived the dream of playing baseball for a living. My baseball fan was thrilled to see all the historic artifacts and exhibits concerning baseball from the beginning of the game til the present. It will take a good full day to see everything,...

I haven't been to the Hall in 30 years, so I enjoyed returning after so long. It's the perfect combination for a sports and history buff like me. Great displays on the history of baseball and the statistical achievements in terms of records. The Hall should replace the primitive introductory film that afters to be 30 years old. Clearly the...

The museum is very well done. The exhibits are interesting and informative. My favorite was the display of the World Series rings that have been awarded each year (originally pins!). The women's league exhibit was also interesting. And, of course, how can anyone not be impressed with thr Hall of Fame...a tribute to excellence and achievement.

I'd been here once before, rather briefly, and so looked forward to doing it again at leisure. I spent about 5 hours in the museum and it went fast. The NBHoF seems to have a corner on all the great mementoes, and rightfully so. I'm glad all the iconic baseball memories are not spread all over the nation - this... More

We came across Cooperstown by pure serendipity on our road trip. Once we realized we were so close, we decided it was a must stop and it didn't disappoint. At first it was a must stop because we didn't know when we were going to be in this part of the world again, but after I walked the halls I... More
