Awesome place, even if you know only a little about baseball. Wonderful small art collection. If you follow baseball at all, you need 2 to 3 hours there. We were there in winter, and the crowd was small and pleasant.

We made this trip to Cooperstown with a true baseball fan; we knew that he would be in the Hall of Fame when it opened and might try to spend the night there. We arrived early evening, checked into the hotel and then walked the short distance to the Hall of Fame Museum. We entered to check on times and... More

This museum is a must see for the baseball lover. We went up this year during the hall of fame classic's game. The museum has a little something for every team, including the female teams during the wartime period. Of course my Yankees were well represented, which was awesome to see. It was a bit of a trip to the... More

This is a bucket list stop for numerous people, and now I see why! The place is just dripping with history of the greatest game to be played on this earth. You see items from the Bambino, to Williams, to Mantle, to Willie and on and on and on! The exhibits are top notch and they are fairly interactive. The... More

Took The Inn at Cooperstown Custom Tour with the National Baseball Hall of Fame. All personnel were friendly, well-informed, pleasant and professional. Our tour guide was extremely full of life and love of the game! The Hall of Fame pays true homage to each player holding their place in history. Laid out well, full of fun facts, 3 floors of...

Lots to see here, we bought season passes during at Christmas time at half price which got us in for free during our visit. If you're a die hard fan you could make a long weekend of it but the casual fan probably could do it in a day. Not much going on in the rest of the town except... More

I visited the National Baseball HOF this past December and all I have to say is that I LOVED IT...For a baseball fan, there is no other place to go. I loved how they have the different section, paying homage to the Women in baseball, the Hispanic Influence, the Negro league, just to name a few. Overall, I think it... More
