In my mind a visit to Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame was going to be an okay side trip on an NY/New England visit. I thought the Hall of Fame would be looking at a few Baseball items through the years and then a whole bunch of plaques on the walls. Well, much to my surprise, the BHOF... More

We spent five hours in the shrine of all things baseball and enjoyed all of it. The display on our World Champion San Francisco Giants was great. Seeing the history of the game was so cool. There was a large section devoted to women in baseball that was really interesting. The plaques for the hall of fame members was like... More

We spent practically the whole day here. The ticket allows you to come and go all day. We spent the morning there. Went out to lunch and came back for a few more hours.

3 went this past week 3 different times. Did a little at a time. It was my husband's Birthday weekend and he has loved baseball since he was a kid. The library was awesome and we didn't even know it existed.

This was a fantastic visit, the museum is a first class experience from the moment you walk in the door. Very updated and fresh looking throughout, with a nice historical progression through the history of the game. They also have a nice treasure hunt for kids, who get a prize if they find certain clues. I also liked the two... More

Great for the baseball fan. Fun for the rest. The HoF offered 3 levels of baseball, baseball and more baseball. Including an area for the broadcasters and movies about baseball as well as the Womens Baseball area, the place was a lot of fun.

Growing up a baseball fan this is a must see, must do, a bucket list MUST. It can be done in a couple of hours, not a suggestion as it is not the easiest to get to.... So spend your time. Amazing the number of items of history in this small building. The exhibits are amazing the tribute to baseball... More

It was everything I wanted it to be and more. The exhibits are well laid out and easy to read. As it should have been, very complete. The films were very meaningful to me, along with the history of this game. To see some of my childhood heroes honored for the abilities and contributions was fantastic and at times I... More
